Hohenheim Castle is located in the Stuttgart district of Hohenheim and was built between 1772 and 1793.
In 1818, King William I founded the Agricultural Model Institute, which in 1904 became the Agricultural College.
The castle now houses parts of the University of Hohenheim. Its state rooms are accessible only during public events or open university.
The three columns of thundering Jupiter were rebuilt at the temple ruins on the Roman Forum in Rome on a scale of 1: 4. Originally, the three columns were decorated with Corinthian capitals and carried an architrave with triglyph friezes.
Today, only the shaft of the eastern pillar is left. The other two are lying on the ground as rubble. Ludwig Uhland is said to have been inspired by this scene in the summer of 1814 to his ballad "The singer's curse":
"Another high pillar
testifies to vanishing splendor,
also these, already burst,
can fall over night. "

November 16, 1900:
With Bismarck's death in 1898, a wave of Bismarck worship begins throughout Germany. 35 years after the assassination attempt by Ferdinand Cohen-Bilnd and after South Germany fought against a Prussian supremacy, the Hohenheim students are enthusiastic about the big German idea. This change in the attitude of Hohenheim students reflects a shift towards nationalism in society.
Schloss Hohenheim - situated on the Fildern south of Stuttgart - is the latest creation of Duke Carl Eugen. He had given the estate Garbenhof in 1771 to his then mistress, the Stuttgart singer Katharina Bonafini.
However, in 1772, Mätresse and owner of the estate changed hands: In the Garbenhof held Dame Franziska von Leutrum their entry, which was raised in 1774 by Emperor Joseph II to the Imperial Countess of Hohenheim and 1783 wife of the Duke. Franziska transformed Carl Eugen, who was always inclined to life, into a man enjoying quiet country life.
From 1772, the Garbenhof, actually a large farm, was structurally upgraded in 1785 then laid the foundation for a new, prestigious castle Hohenheim. Master builder was Reinhard Ferdinand Heinrich Fischer. Until the death of the Duke in 1793 in a mansard of the still unfinished castle Fischer continued the construction work. After that, the castle, which was unloved by the descendants, remained standing as a ruined building until King William I founded an Agricultural Teaching, Experimental and Model Institute there in 1818. Today this is part of the University of Hohenheim and the castle.
The castle Hohenheim and the park with the botanical garden have been preserved.
