Train Trip to Schwetzingen on Saturday, July 16

Dear Members and Guests, please join us on

Saturday, July 16,

for a

Full Day Train Adventure Trip to the Schwetzingen Palace and Gardens near Heidelberg.

The Prince-Electors of the Rhineland Palatinate transformed their small medieval castle turned hunting lodge in Schwetzingen into a representative summer residence palace in the mid-18th century. Since then, little has been changed, so that we can enjoy the palace apartments and also stroll through the beautiful French style formal gardens and the English country garden, one of the first of its kind to be created in Germany. You won't want to miss this adventure!
We will use the 9 € monthly train ticket for July and travel from Stuttgart via Karlsruhe to Schwetzingen. You must buy your own July 9 € train pass in advance, and bring it with you. The club will not buy train tickets for the group on the day of the event!
