Pictures of Schwetzingen Germany

Take a Virtual Tour of Pictures of Schwetzingen's Palace and Royal Gardens

By

Schwetzingen, Germany is a mere 10 km from Heidelberg, on Germany's Castle road, making a day trip a rather easy affair. Why go to Schwetzingen? There's a huge and rather pinkish orange palace with 180 acres of formal gardens. Built in the 1300's as a fortress, the palace was converted into a hunting lodge in the 1500's and then into a summer residence. Now the palace and gardens are open to the public and are worth a visit.

We visited in early April, when the trees were in full bloom, as you can see from the pictures. The gardens include a Mosque and various temples you can see in the pictures.
