There may be tours, but we weren't there at a time when they are available. We walked around the building, with a little "guidebook" explanation. The grounds are spacious, and clearly a favorite place for families to enjoy the outdoors. As we were leaving, we saw a city bus arrive, so evidently it's accessible by public transportation. Great views.

Outside of Stuttgart proper this former palace/estate/castle is now mostly known for a very good Restsurant. Used by many locals for special occasion dining.

It's a lovely small Schloss outside Stuttgart, easily accessible by car. There is also a restaurant, which was closed however the day we went for a wedding.

The name says it all. This location surrounded by green space and shielded from the noise and business of the city by the "forest". An ideal place for a picnic, sit in the grass reading a book, having a conversation, or just enjoy the quiet. There are tours available for those who want to learn more about the history.

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
