Schloss Solitude

Schloss Solitude

Although located a few miles outside of Stuttgart's city center, Schloss Solitude - also known as Solitude Palace - is a must-see attraction. Built for Duke Karl Eugen in 1763, this spectacular palace contains many fine state apartments and its lovely interior, designed in a late Rococo/early Neoclassical style, will make you want to linger a little as you soak in its splendor. Highlights include the well-preserved pavilion with its decorative rooms, and the White Hall with its lovely domed roof, frescoes, and ceiling murals. Outside, in addition to the well-kept grounds, you'll want to stroll along at least a portion of Solitude Allee, a 13 kilometer route joining the palace to Ludwigsburg Residential Palace and offering splendid views of the Württemberg lowlands. Entry to Schloss Solitude is only possible as part of a guided tour (for English language tours, please be sure to contact the attraction in advance).
