The landmark of this little spa town is the baroque Schloss (palace) of the dukes of Zweibrücken. The Gasthaus Zum Engel (Königstrasse 45) is an impressive Renaissance house with elaborate scrolled gables and decorative oriels. Visit Café Herzog (Marktstrasse 48) for scrumptious, homemade chocolates, cakes, and ice creams made with unexpected ingredients, such as wine, pepper, cardamom, curry, thyme, or fig vinegar. The café is closed Mondays.
