Has anyone been to Schwetzingen, Germany

We're going to be staying in Heidelberg for a week. I'll be working and my friend is going to be on her own. I've heard that Schwetzingen is really nice. I understand there is a castle of sorts with a beautiful garden. Every website I have found so far has been in German (reasonable, but I can't read it). Has anyone been there? Suggestions on how to fill a day there?
Thank you

Sam: You can see at least some beautiful pictures at Schwetzingen's home page at:
http://www.schwetzingen.de/

Just click "e-cards".

A lot of smaller German towns don't have home pages in English (yet).

Hi Sam,

you did not tell us when you are going, but if it is in the "Asparagus" season you are in for a treat. Schwetzingen is known as one of a couple of German towns which are known for their (white) Asparagus (Spargel). They even host a festival and it will be the speciality in most restaurants. Try it! (April to July).
They also host a Mozart festival, so if you are into classical music that should be interesting, as well.
You are right about the castle and gardens. Both are beautiful. I would say there is enough to do and see for a day. If you want me to check what is going on there on your dates, I will do it for you.

Kind regards

Miriam
