Schlossgarten Schwetzingen

Summer residence of Elector Carl Theodor
Interesting fact: Gardens were based on the examples of Versailles
Today, instead of lessons, we had an excursion to Schwetzingen to visit the Schlossgartens (palace gardens) there. It is extensive! Hence, we could visit only right side of the gardens, and of it, only half too. Unfortunately, we couldn’t visit the Schloss itself as it’s only opened on Saturday(?), but we did get to visit the beautiful Badhaus (bath house)!
Will have to visit the palace sometime soon!Edit:// Did visit the Schloß again in March.
