Definitely a must see if you're in the area. You can spend the whole day walking around these beautiful gardens and still not see everything there is to see. It reminds me of the gardens of Versailles

We've been to Central Germany many times but had never been to Schloss Schwetzingen. I have to say that the photos don't do it justice. The expanse of the grounds alone is totally mind-blowing. You can walk for hours and not see everything. It's impeccably...More

It's six euros the garden and ten the castle. It must be open also in November but it must close earlier than in summer when I visited it. Due to the fact that I went there from Heidelberg I'm not in a position to let you... More
