This castle is not a must do, but if you have time left it is a very nice garden to visit. Unfortunately the castle was closed when we visited it. But the garden is very well maintained and if you like to stroll in a park it is a very nice area. I cannot appreciate this garden as it should be because I have visited Versaille in Paris .

Very lovely gardens, although you need to go there in summer months to fully enjoy the beauty. A charming mosque at the back of the gardens.

It was very interesting getting there. We used the bus from Heidelberg (which you can pick up at the train station), nothing to it and it was easy as pie. Not used to things being this easy with the busses. Anyway, the gardens were a lot like Versailles, laid out the same way and with the same grandiuos design. We also took a tour of the Schloss but since it was in German, we got to read along with the guide. It was fine, not as opulent as some of the other palaces we’ve seen but the gardens made up for it.

Versailles is the nearest thing that's brought to mind - but without the crowds (or perhaps Fontainebleau given its proximity to the town). The gardens are vast and it's easy to get lost - make sure you get a map at the ticket desk. There are surprises everywhere - a huge mosque, temples, a bath house, ornamental fountains, orangery - even a flock of green parakeets. Money appeared to be no object. Allow plenty of time, particularly if you take the guided tour of the house (recommended, even if it was in German). Like others, we only really scratched the surface (the theatre was closed and we didn't get to the Orangery), but the gardens are open until quite late. Difficult to remember that this was only a summer residence.
Tea/coffee and cake available at the end of the right-hand wing (a must), or by the main gate, but provision of toilets is a bit lacking. Parking in the town with easy walk in through the main gates.
