This is not far from Heidelberg - well worth the bus ride. The gardens are large, well manicured and full of surprises - take your time and enjoy this treasure. We also got the palace tour (not sure why they call it a castle -...More

It is less than 30 min by bus from Heidelberg, and the buses run every 30 min, perfect for a spontaneous day trip from Heidelberg. I opted only for the Garden entry at 6 Euro. It was beautiful, like Versailles, but much quieter and you...More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. I didn't go for the guided tour (so I can't say much about the Palace itself), and only bought tickets for the garden entry (you need to pay to enter the garden grounds: €6 for adults; €3 for reduced...More

This is a great Place for Walking your dog, go out for a run or just enjoy the Beautiful gardens. :)

The bright pastel orange castle in a very tourist friendly town. Lots of students too especially on Thursdays! Schwetzingen is also famous for white asparagus...! The castle charges a EUR 6 entry fee but totally worth it. The grounds are huge with a lake (with...More

Schloss Schwetzingen is a wonderful visual experience. We only toured the gardens but that is sufficient for one day. We must have walked 6 km here in less than 2 hours. It is totally flat so easy walking. The gardens are beautiful and currently in...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
