We arrived in town at about noon so we headed directly to the palace to ensure that we could get tickets for the 1:30 English tour and leave time to see the fairy tale park. The walk from... More

The palace is well preserved on condition close to the original. There are three museums - two of them are very interesting - the porcelain (china) and the ancient cloths. The fine arts gallery is good too, but the light is very bad, mostly in sunny days.

This palace has such a live atmosphere as if the king and the queen are still living here . The garden outside is also fantastic !

Quite a bit of the original furniture, so a great place to visit. The gardens are wonderful and compliment the palace. Great visit.

Every castle has own stories and interesting past, and this is not an exception! The tour guide takes you back in time and your imagination can soar around... There are guided tours in German and English. At the summer in nice sunny day you should have light jacket as the castle can be chilly, winter you should have proper winter... More

Large Baroque palace not far from Stuttgart. Went on English tour and saw numerous room, a chapel and theatre. were not allowed to take photos except of the outside. Could easily have spent much longer as several subsidiary museums and gardens to be seen

We took a tour through almost 38 different rooms. Our tour guide spoke perfect English just in case your German skills are a little rusty. Pricing per tickets were fair and the tour took just over an hour. We learned a lot and found that we should also try to take the tour that takes you "behind the scenes".

Very nice, well maintained. Train was a highlight. Shame that the older rides weren't all running. Beware, there are some rodents in fairytale area. 🐁🐀
