The home to many historical castles

Rastatt, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Rastatt is a city located in Baden-Württemberg, on the Murg River just six kilometers above its junction with the River of Rhine. This was an important place in Germany during the Revolution of 1848 and the War of Spanish Succession. After its destruction by the French in 1689, Louis William, margrave of Baden was the one who rebuilt it on a larger scale.


It was home for margraves of Baden-Baden until 1771. The city of Rastatt that we see today is the home to many old and historical buildings. There is a myriad of castles and palaces from he past, including the Schlossa and Schloss Rastatt.
