Fodor's Review

Two chateaulike castles are found between Baden-Baden and Ettlingen. The pink-sandstone, three-wing Schloss forms the centerpiece of the small town of Rastatt. Built at the end of the 17th century by Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm of Baden (known as Ludwig the Turk for his exploits in the Turkish wars), its highlights include the chapel, gardens, and a pagoda. Inside the palace itself are museums of German history. Guided tours are possible if you call ahead.
