We went to a Chris de Burgh concert in the grounds of the Schloss which was amazing. The views of the Schloss from both the front and back are stunning - very reminiscent of some Russian palaces. The gardens are also beautiful and well worth strolling through at your leisure.

Many come from all over Germany and abroad to visit this baroque castle and the Balthasar Neumann Treppe (Staircase) is unique and one of a kind. The park behind the castle is perfect for a stroll around in nature.

I live near Heidelberg and was looking for another palace or castle to visit on my days off. Bruchsal is a short drive from Heidelberg, and once you get into the old part of the city, you are privy to beautiful Baroque-style houses and buildings that, according to my German boyfriend, date back to Napoleon's era. Old Bruchsal is a... More

We drove especially to Bruchsal to see the palace and we were very dissapointed that you can hardly see anything related to a palace, except 2 rooms which are nicely decorated but besides that nothing, no furniture, no ornaments, no explanations absolutely nothing. They do havea nice music box exhibition which is interesting but I am not sure if we... More

Place of interest in context to similar historical buildings in the region, for example: Heidelberg, Mannheim, Karlsruhe, Rastatt. This castle was complete destroyed in the world war II, the reconstruction to be effected originally. Actual, Museum for historical musicboxes and antique furnitures. For architects of interst: famous staircase.

We knew that the Castle was an architectural gem and that its garden a thing of beauty. What we had not anticipated was the love and enthusiasm of the staff for THEIR castle. The staff will approach you and volunteer their knowledge. Such wonderful guides we have encountered only in Britain's National Trust Properties. As a result, we purchased several... More

On our visit on the last day of July there was hardly anything else there which was a great shame as this phenomenal restoration of a baroque palace after second world war damage deserves a bigger audience. Still unlike Versailles you can actually see everything without the i-goons in the way. And there's a brilliant museum of musical automata.

I have been at Bruchsal Schloss today, and the staircase was indeed very nice. But as foreign visitors we have been requested to pay 17,50 euro instead og the 15 advertised on the Palace website. Also, the brochure from our hotel advertised with the the automatic music boxes, where some of them can be operated by vistors, and when we... More
