Residenzschloss Rastatt, Rastatt

#1 of 16 in Things to do in Rastatt
Wander the hallways of a grand castle at Residenzschloss Rastatt, a summer home built between 1710 and 1730. Upper-class citizens used the castle as retreat during the warmer months, when the women would socialize and the men would hunt. See how wealthy Germans once lived, and also check out the sizeable collection of Chinese porcelain, black lacquer work, and Schwartz porcelain. Don't leave without exploring the military museum, too, where you can view swords, battlefield models, uniforms, and more dating from the Thirty Years War and World War I. If you are hoping for an English-speaking guided tour, be sure to make a reservation ahead of time; otherwise, you can join a German-speaking tour and follow along with an English-language brochure.

  • The Schloss was directly across the street from our hotel in a beautiful park setting. Although we didn't go in, we enjoyed walking the grounds and courtyard.  more »
  • The castle is very worth seeing, the guide to this was very good and informative. Afterwards we had a good overview of the castle and family history, which i both were not so present. In addition, the ticket was also valid for the Military History Collection. The tour lasted about an hour.
