Schwetzingen Castle (Schloss Schwetzingen) is a palace in the northern part of the Baden-Württemberg region of Germany, not too far from Heidelberg. The castle can trace its origins back to 1350 when a small moated castle stood in its place. The Prince Elector Johann Wilhelm commissioned alterations to the castle in 1697, which included two additional wings that greatly added to the size of the castle. This is how the current form of the building came to be.

The castle flourished under the Prince Elector Carl Theodor in the 1700s. He had leading landscape architects design beautiful gardens for the palace. They created geometrical patterns and leafy avenues, and later an English-style landscaped park called the Arborium Theodoricum was added to the Baroque garden. It is one of the earliest of its kind in Germany. Throughout the garden are buildings and statues designed in styles from Greece, Italy, Turkey, and beyond, giving it an exotic atmosphere. The palace's rooms contain furniture and artifacts from the 18th and early 19th centuries.

On tour with a friend and his Mercedes S-Class - true first-class service

On tour with a friend and his Mercedes S-Class - true first-class service

star-5

The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice. The stops mentioned under "Itinerary" are possible destinations of our tour. I am more than happy to compose an individual tour, which is based entirely on your preferences and wishes. I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time. You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.
