Altes Schloss Stuttgart (Old Castle Stuttgart)
Tu to Su from 10:00 AM to 05:00 PMThe 10th-century Altes Schloss is located in the heart of the city adjacent to the 19th-century Neues Schloss. Since its construction, the castle has served as a residence for the city's sovereign Counts in 14th Century and by the dukes. On commands of the 16th-century dukes, the moats of the castle were removed and it was converted into a Renaissance castle. What we see today at the site was reconstructed in 1969, as the original was destroyed during the World War II. The castle is currently the headquarters of the Württemberg State Museum that houses archaeological, as well as collections related to local history and culture.
