The exterior is impressive. But closed on Monday for the museum. The palace grounds are pretty. The botanical garden next to it was very enjoyable with all the flowers and blossoms.

The Karlsruhe Schloß is now home to the Badisches Landesmuseum, so if you're looking for a historically restored tour of what this magnificent Schloß looked like when Karl Friedrich called it his crib ... this is not it. The museum is very interesting, but if...More
