Stuttgart Travel Tip:
Castle Solitude, Stuttgart
Solitude Palace lies on the heights southwest of Stuttgart with a magnificent view of the lowlands. Built in the years between 1764 and 1769, it is the center of an entire complex which, as an expression of the royal will to build in the fading rococo, is considered one of the outstanding architectural ensembles of the 18th century in the German Southwest.
With its three wings arranged around a central open space, its preserved interior fittings and a number of items of original furniture, this palace evokes a sense of the splendour of its heyday. The eleven rooms on show in the palace are notable for their mix of Rococo to Classicist styles. During the transformation phase from one epoch to the next, it was perfectly acceptable to display the two different styles side by side. Today, this popular destination for day trippers with its Palace Restaurant is home to an academy for young artists.
