Wasserschloss Glatt Saturday, 8 August 2015

Dear Members and Guests,

Please join us on a historic and culturally interesting tour on Saturday, August 8 to the Wasserschloss Glatt, housing the "Culture and Museum Center". In a small romantic valley in the Black Forest the village Glatt is the home of one of the few still existing moated castles in the country. The museum in the castle offers a lot of information about the way of life of the nobility - the "High Society" - in the upper Neckar region.

Start of the tour: 15:00 sharp
Cost: Members pay 5 EUR, guests pay 10 EUR
Address of Meeting point: Entrance of the "Culture and Museum Center Schloss Glatt"
(Kultur- und Museumszentrum KMZ Schloss Glatt) Schloss 1, 72172 Sulz am Neckar - Glatt

We will start our visit with a brief introduction in the history of the castle and then continue with two guided tours, one in English and one in German. The arranged tour will take us through parts of the Schlossmuseum "Lords and Servants", the Adelsmuseum "Way of Life of the Nobility" and the art gallery "Showcase of the Art of the Region".

After the guided tour is over at 16:00, you will be on your own for an hour. You can visit the Bauernmuseum "The Way of Life of the Farmers" across from the castle. Or take a walk around the castle and through the village of Glatt. Or enjoy the famous Black Forest Cherry Cake in the Schlosscafe.

At 17:00 we will meet again at the museum's entrance and walk over to the nearby Swabian restaurant "Züfle", Oberamtstraße 10, 72172 Sulz - Glatt, to have dinner.

Best regards,
