“One of Many Attractions Near By”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

The New Castle (or palace) is essentially a huge office building built as a “palace.” We didn’t go inside (special tour apparently required), but we did view it from several sides, it makes an excellent backdrop for the multiple photo worthy subjects in the area. I recommend shooting it across the pond in the evening when the reflections add to the grandeur of the place.

“Scenic castel in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is the new castle wich is located just accross the stree from the old castle. Both are worth having a look at. The new castle houses a lot of city and local government offices however they still do tours. Centrally located in the middle of downtown Stuttgart this castle as well as the old castle are worth visiting while you make your way through down town.

A good tip - when visiting Stuttgart if you check the events calendar a large number of the festivals and gathering occur in the square near the castle so you can kill more than one bird with a stone and maximize your trip. The castle is also very easy to find on a map and can be used a point of reference when locating other attractions.

“Nothing special about it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

This is not your typical european castle, because it's more modern than the rest, as the name suggests. It contains several government offices so you cannot go in as easily. But the view from the outside at the Schlossplatz is awesome.

“Versaille in Stuttgart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

You cannot go in unless you are a special tour or guest but the exterior is well maintained and provides a stunning stage back drop for the Konigs Stasse Park and the entrance to the park that runs all the way down to the river by Bad Cannstadt. Just beautiful.

“Check it out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

All Germany's Castles are great and you should try to see as many as you can. No one builds them anymore.
