When compared to the likes Versailles, Schonbrunn, and Charlottenburg, Schloss Schwetzingen may seem a bit provincial. But that's the core of its charm. The gardens and decorative buildings here (including a mosque) provide a nice balance of nature and man. Neither is it overwhelming in...More

If you visit Schwetzingen you must to visit Schwetzingen Castle or in German language Schloss. The biggest touristic atraction and I think the best period of visiting is June. The smell of lime with the lake. Typical small and very similar of Versailles from Paris.

Especially the gardens of the Schloss merit a visit. It is a classic French garden with lots of Art and interestingly a large Turkish Mosque
