Hiking: The Gardens of Solitude

This hike is more of a guided walk through the forests and gardens of the summer hunting palace of Solitude. This palace was the retreat of the Dukes of Württemberg, though by the time it was built, Napoleon had started his march across Europe, and the estate was never fully developed. Today it is a glimpse into the courtly culture of the late 18th century.
