Versailles of Suabia
Located north of Stuttgart, very close to the city is this imperial palace known as the Versailles of Suabia. The Duke of Württemberg, Eberhard Ludwig, had it built in 1704 for his mistress, the Countess Wilhelmina von Graevenitz. Numerous architects and designers were involved in its construction. The monumental palace is surrounded by beautiful, Baroque-style gardens. The park is a marvel, very well cared for and intricate. Worth a visit to see the panoramic view offered. The entrance fee for site is reduced for groups and students. We arrived very late and did not see inside the residence. It is ideal for spending an afternoon if you are in Stuttgart and the surrounding area.
