After passing through Hockenheim and Ketsch, you’ll arrive in Schwetzingen. Famous for its annual classical music and opera festival, this spectacular town features a palace with elegant gardens, which are labelled as an European cultural heritage site. The palace’s large, traditional rooms offer a glimpse into 18th and 19th century living. The Rokokotheater is a must-see highlight.
If traveling has taken its toll, head to Bellamar, a series of indoor and outdoor pools perfect for children. Adults also can relax in a sauna to relieve the stress of the journey.
