Europe's finest Castle Garden ......
Located just 10 minutes away from Heidelberg, charming Schwetzingen is a lesser known highlight of the area. Enjoy the beauty & serenity of one of Europe's loveliest gardens & treat yourself to some quality peace and relaxation.
Just a short stroll from the stylish Main Street of Schwetzingen lies the Castle & Garden - the Summer residence of the Prince's of Heidelberg.
The Wonderful Gardens are one of the lesser known jewels of the area. The wonderful and expansive garden is an inspiration all year round. It covers a huge area( 78 hectares) with many fascinating features, such as ruined Temples, the only remaining 'Mosque' in the whole of Europe, ornate gardens, statues, a large orangerie, lakes and even a replica Roman viaduct to enjoy.
