We went on a sunday when everything else was closed. Did not get a guided tour to the inside but the grounds are awesome and lots of people biking in this area and/or just sitting down for a picnic. Nice place to get away from the city and it was only 15 minutes away.

If you like history, the Schloss Solitude is interesting but small compare to other castles in Europe. Parking is not a problem but there is no rest room or a place to have a sit and enjoy the solitude if that is what you are looking for.

Pros: beauty of baroque architecture, opportunities to walk or bike in beautiful woods surrounding the schloss, watch other people's weddings & celebrations. Cons: a bit hard to get to the schloss, bike ride will be ideal if it can be arranged from Ludwigsburg, a direct route from the palace. Driving or public transportation will be more complicated.

It was fun to see the differences (and similarities) in style between this castle and one in Berlin, plus all of the French chateaus I've seen. There is one white room that is just stunning - it looks like a wedding should be hosted there! While we were prepared for a German tour that we didn't really understand, since we... More

Evidently, Carl Eugen never lived here, but it did house his mistress. Very scenic, though the garden could do with some restoration. Great excursion for a sunny day.

Called solitude this hunting lodge built in baroque style is a great place to visit. On a sunny day you can enjoy the greenery surrounding the schloss. Nice place for photography enthusiast. You can find nice restaurant and ice cream vans. Do visit it for scenic beauty as well as for a nice siesta in the open gardens

This is another place I bring my friends who are visiting Stuttgart. I love that you can see the 13 km straight-line road to Ludwigsburg from the Schloss Solitude lawn. I have never been inside the Schloss, but I'm not a museum-type person, but I love the castle and its perch atop the hill. I have never had a problem... More

There area few buildings where one can enter, some exhibitions to take a look at and really charming area arround. You can get there with a direct bus from centre (Stadtmitte). From there you can take a (pretty long) wald to the lake nearby. Beautifull architecture.

Probably you have seen much of it - in Germany you can find such castles almost in all big cities. This one, though, wins due to its location as well - at the top of the hill, overlooking a great field and the city in the far. Can be windy in the winter, so choose your clothing wisely - but...

We came here via the bus that dropped us at the estate door. It was very easy to get to and worth the trip. I highly recommend the tour, which they can do in multiple languages. The guide we had was excellent and seeing this "hunting lodge" was a nice afternoon spent absorbing the history of the area.
