Travel Tips for Rastatt

Tet e Tete and all that!

by Wokingman

The Tete e Tete. If you are intending to visit southern Germany, then do not miss the bi- annual tete e tete street festival in Rastatt. ( the next one starts 1st June 2010) You need to book accomodation and show tickets well in advance. Once there you will enjoy World wide street theatre and wonderful staged shows.
I have been several times as a guest of the city and enjoyed acts from australia, England, Holland and many other countries. The town comes alive at night with the sound of music and laughter and it made little difference that i speak very little German!!! The food is great and a visit the ice cream restaurant in the centre of town is a must!
Having its own brewary is a great asset and I recommend the local beer. The People are friendly, helpful and have a great sence of History. What I miss is the famous white asparagus! The castle and summer palace with their heavy Baroque influence and large selection of Delph Tiles will always remain a good memory, as will the museum in the centre of the city. The city remains true to the past and thanks to its past Oberbergameister Klaus Walker it has rediscovered its history pre 1930's.

Chapels and Churches

by Russell_the_Wombat

Being such a pious Catholic, Sibylla Augusta had churches (plural!) built in the residential town of Rastatt, too. This one here was designed after the model of a pilgrimage chapel in Einsiedeln, Switzerland.

Thing is, the original one in Einsiedeln has been destroyed by Napoleon's troops. The one in Rastatt is still standing...

... next to little Pagodenburg and the water tower. Here is an overview of the whole ensemble, including me.

A side wing of the palace contains the palace chapel. This one is closed to the public and even harder to access than the hermitage in Favorite. Mommy once had the chance to see the interior during a conference.

This one is Rastatt's oldest parish church, the church of St Bernhard, the house saint of Baden - he was a member of the Margraves' family. The church has been renovated and redesigned in the late 18th century, thus its baroque appearance.

It was already late in the afternoon and the orange light of the setting sun makes the facades glow.
