Schloss Rosenstein is a country castle in Stuttgart, which was built in 1824-1829 under King William I by his court architect Giovanni Salucci in classicist style. The castle is located in the immediate vicinity of the zoological and botanical garden of the Wilhelma on the eastern edge of an English landscape garden, the Rosensteinpark in the district of Bad Cannstatt.
The castle, planned as a summer residence, was never permanently occupied. In the years 1877-1918, the castle housed the significant collection of paintings and sculptures of the king, from 1921 the World War I Library and from 1933 additionally a war museum. After heavy war destruction in 1944, the castle was rebuilt in the 1950s. Of the rich artistic interior design, only the four-season frieze of Conrad Weitbrecht could be saved.
