Schloss Schwetzingen

Schloss Schwetzingen (28 Feb 2014)

I spent a few days with a friend who lives near Darmstadt, and we visited Schloss Schwetzingen which is a wonderful building dating to approximately 1700-1750.  It has extensive, beautiful gardens and is roughly equidistant from Manheim and Heidelberg,the other seats of the  Electors of Palatine.  A remarkable feature seen on Google Earth is what used to be a straight avenue lined with mulberry trees going to Heidelberg.
