Schloss Solitude

Schloss Solitude


Formerly a retreat - today an excursion destination

The name says it all: Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, whose name translated from French means “solitude,” is located in an absolute idyll in the west of Stuttgart. The picturesque castle was built from 1763 onwards by order of Duke Carl Eugen von Württemberg as a hunting lodge and retreat. The duke himself was involved in the planning after he had lost interest in his actual building project, the lakeside Monrepos Palace in Ludwigsburg. Solitude Palace was located in the ducal hunting grounds of the time on the wooded heights west of Stuttgart and is considered the duke’s most individual building. Today, Solitude Palace is a popular destination for visitors and Stuttgart residents alike.
