En route for Heidelberg we stopped off in Schwetzingen which boasts a castle and gardens. The gardens outdo the castle by a mile, well worth the €6 entry fee. Planted formally in the French style they require a big staff just to maintain, but we...More

Excellent location, especially for the gardens. Suggestion is to use a soft pair of shoes and enjoy a guided visit of the construction . Well maintained and clean. Suggested!

Husband had gone to the Grand Prix so I decided to visit Schloss Schwetzingen as I’d heard good things about the gardens. I chose not to do the Castle tour as you can’t take cameras in and I was there primarily to take photographs. Fair...More

This was one of my highlights to visit the castle and gardens. The gardens is a mini - Versailles and I could spend many more hours in and around the castle and gardens. A must see and do!

When a guy at the ticket desk asked me if I wanted German or English tour I proudly asked for German one although I worried a bit if I would understand properly. Very big thanks to our guide who spoke nice German without dialect and...More

We only had time to tour the grounds of the Schloss which extend for a mile or more with little cul-de-sacs off to the side. Beautiful and relaxing. The train system in Germany is excellent and takes you to Schwetzingen. To... More
