Schloss Favorite is a Baroque hunting lodge built from 1717 to 1723 for the sovereign Duke of Württemberg, Eberhard Ludwig. The architect was Donato Giuseppe Frisoni.

From 1806, King Frederick I of Württemberg converted the park into a ménagerie, including deer and chamois. The architect Nikolaus Friedrich von Thouret renovated the building's interior in neoclassical style.

In the 20th century, the house was neglected and fell into disrepair. It was restored from 1980 on, and opened to the public in 1983.

Herrlicher Ort für alle. Kleine Menschen können hier rennen und sich bewegen. Ein kleiner Fleck inmitten von wunderbar alten Bäumen.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
