Perfect venues for every occasion - The comprehensive range of offers by the Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten Baden-Württemberg (State Heritage Agency)
Tours turn a visit to the palaces and monasteries into an experience – particularly when there is a charming lady or gentleman from a long passed epoch to welcome the guests. In many monuments, there are restaurants and cafés included in the offers, inviting to round off the visit in an enjoyable way. Concerts, festivals and top-class events bring the historical rooms to life. Many places can also be rented – atmospheric venues for private functions. Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten Baden-Württemberg attach great importance to a good service!
Tours – Diversity as a hallmark
The palaces and monasteries are steeped in history: you find this out at any of the many tours on offer by the Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten. The tours with the contemporary historical witnesses are an endearing specialty: medieval monks or 18th century ladies-in-waiting take the visitors on a trip back in time – amusing, entertaining, knowledgeable and as exciting as a historical theatrical play. There is also a wide range of exciting offers available for children and young people.
Every year a new inspiring theme
Old walls time and time anew: each year, the Staatliche Schlösser und Gärten present their monuments under a different theme. For unusual tours and attractive events, the focus is always on different aspects. 2017 is the great anniversary of the Reformation, which began exactly 500 years ago: the venues of this great history suddenly become visible! In 2018, everything will be about Eating and Drinking in castles, palaces and monasteries through the centuries – this will turn the visit into an enjoyable experience the whole year through.
Venues with character
There are no more beautiful settings to be found: the monasteries, palaces and castles are famous for their festivals and markets. A traditional Christmas market in the fairy-tale atmosphere of a monastery cloister, an open-air summer event in front of the festive façade of a baroque palace – the atmosphere is always compelling. The palaces and monasteries of Baden-Württemberg are home to internationally prestigious festivals – sometimes with a tradition dating back many centuries.
Ranging from the rustical castle tavern to the fine Michelin-star palace restaurant: in the palaces and monasteries, hospitality has been lovingly maintained as a matter of course for centuries. Many of the locations have regional specialties on the menu. The services are rich in variety - and everywhere the delights on your plate are combined with the beauty of the historical ambience.
Conferences and festivities in a royal ambience
Magnificent celebrations, rustical medieval feasts and important conferences are a tradition here. Many rooms can also be booked for private functions – say, for a special family celebration or a congress. The 60 palaces, monasteries, gardens and castles of Baden-Württemberg form a unique showcase for events that will leave a fond, lasting impression.
