“Tour in English?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

If anyone wants to visit Rastatt Castle between May 21 and June 2, 2012, please contact me at calem_n@shaw.ca so we can arrange an English guided tour.
The guided tour in English is available only on request (I contacted the administration and got this response below):
"We have guided Tours from Tuesday till Sunday every Hour. The tour is guided in german, but we have an written translation in englisch. The price is 6.00€ par person.
If you want extra guided tour in English, this is also possible, but the price then is 140,-€ the Groupe ( 0-25 Persons). If you want these extra Tour, just let us know, we will send you then a Reservation. Tell us how many people you are and when you will come."
Hope I can find people to have a guided tour of this marvelous palace ...... :)

“Baroque castle on the Rhine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

At the beginning of the 18th century,Italian architect D.E.Rossi planned a new residence for Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden-Baden,whose victories over the Turks had earned him the name "Turkenlouis".Versailles served as inspiration and model.You admire now magnificent halls and rooms with ceiling frescos and fine stucco.It is a feast for lover of the baroque art.

“Call ahead if you want English-language entrance”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

We showed up to visit Schloss Rastatt on a Friday afternoon in December only to find there were no English tours available that day. The only option to see the castle interior was to join a German-language tour lasting over one hour with a brief English-language brochure. We declined, since I've been on enough tours to know that the 20 seconds it takes to read through the English description of a room is not worth the 10 minutes of waiting for the rest of the group.

Bottom line: if you hope to visit this attraction and receive an English-language option, call ahead to find out the rare times.
