Whilst the accompanied tour was only available in German we were given an English translation which was easy to follow. Tour was relaxed and informative, decor and furnishings were opulent and the illuminated chandeliers amazing, After the tour our combination ticket gave access to a very interesting and comprehensive military museum. An interesting couple of hours on a rainy day.
Rastatt is quite a small city, and you need just 1 or 2 hours to see main places but also you can have a rest in a park, walking to the caste, making shopping on their main street which is looking like many years ago, without cars, with cosy restaurants and nice shops. Will come back there again :)
We were there as part of a Scenic River Cruise that included a tour of the castle and an opera show in the evening. The guided tour included most of the rooms which still had their period furnishings, it was very impressive especially the ceilings. The walk into the castle with the gardens and forecourt is magnificent. The guide was... 更多
Visited this castle for an evening classical concert and what a treat, both the concert and the tour through some of the rooms. The pink/orange building was illuminated for the occasion as was the impressive gateway into the massive courtyard.

We were fortunate to have a private tour as part of our cruise, which included an opera performance, which was fantastic. The palace was excellent, the art and architecture was brilliant. Apart from the weather, which isn't anyone's fault, couldn't be happier.
The castle itself is beautiful. The inside is gorgeous - not a whole lot to see though! definitely not worth the admission fee if visitors are not allowed to take the time and enjoy it at their own pace. You can only see the castle with the 50 min guided tour. We are from US, visited the castle 10 days... 更多
Nice castle, now a great museum. Nice garden on grounds. Most of exhibits were military. Has a piece of Berlin Wall. Easy walk from Hotel, convenient.
