    The Hermitage Solitude is idyllically located in the former ducal hunting grounds west of Stuttgart. The castle is considered the most sophisticated creation of Duke Carl Eugen of Württemberg and was one of the largest construction companies of its time.Today Solitude impresses with great architecture, a spacious garden and a magnificent view towards Ludwigsburg. Through the northern gate, the course of the Solitude-All can be marveled at - a direct connection axis from the Residenzschloss Ludwigsburg to the duke's favorite hunt lock, which was used by the Württembergische Landesvermessung from 1820 as a baseline.

    Nice masonry. Even if you just drive past it.
    But there is also something to see inside. I think a kind of museum.

    Great view and a huge meadow for a short breather in between ... and if you're lucky, even the ice cream truck comes over!

    An impressive castle - far beyond Stuttgart. The climb is worthwhile. Of course you can also go by car. ;-)
