Come to Bruchsal for a vision of German grandeur as it used to be. It’s a trip worth taking for the sheer pleasure of getting lost in the historic only to find yourself in the lap of modern luxuries and in the rhythm of good times.
If you have ever wondered why the past has such a magnetic attraction for us, the answer lies in the irretrievable quaintness and the irreplaceable artistry of the bygone age that still lives in the remnants that it has left behind.
Come grab your share in the exquisite legacy of history to be found in Bruchsal.
Visit first of all the grand 18th century Baroque palace that holds sway over the little town. Looking at its beauty you could never imagine that it suffered the atrocities of war. Admire the extensive artwork on the ceiling, the majestic staircase and more of the sumptuous interiors. Lucky for you and all who visit ingenious restoration work has it looking as good as old.
Located here is the Museum of Mechanical Musical Instruments which is an interesting tour to take whether you’re into music or not.
The 18th century St. Peter’s Church is another attraction that you may want to visit. If you’re lucky you might make it to one of the concerts that they occasionally host here.
The Bruchsal Municipal Museum is where you’ll be blown away by the unique exhibits such as the Ice Age animals and other pre-historic artifacts. Look out for a fascinating collection of coins from all over. If touring museums is something you love there’s more.
Visit the Corps de Logis where the Baden Provincial Museum has an imperial collection of artwork, tapestries, porcelain and more of the same genre to give you an idea of how different daily routines must have been in those days.
