Weißer Saal im Neuen Schloss Stuttgart

The former residence of the Württemberg dukes and kings, together with the Old Castle and the Schlossplatz, forms the urban center of the state capital. Today, the magnificent rooms still serve the representation of the country.

The New Castle Stuttgart has no regular opening or Guided tour times during which the castle can be visited. Since the castle serves as the seat of the Ministry of Finance Baden-Württemberg and the Ministry of Economics, Labour and Housing Baden-Württemberg, no guided tours for groups can be carried out. Special tours are offered at irregular intervals. The dates of these special tours are announced via the daily press and on this website. There are currently no appointments planned.

The Old Castle did not meet the demands of the young duke: When Carl Eugen of Württemberg came to Stuttgart in 1744 at the age of 16, he had clear ideas of an appropriate residence. Therefore, he demanded the construction of an “appropriate apartment suitable for his princely dignity and the scope of Dero Hofstaat’s” – and threatened to move the court’s attitude to Ludwigsburg otherwise. This is how the New Castle was built.
