Leonberg Castle

Leonberg, Germany

Schloss Leonberg was founded in 1248 by count Ulrich I of Württemberg. The original castle was modified between 1560 and 1565 by the master builder Aberlin Tretsch by order of the duke Christoph. The widow of Frederick I of Württemberg, Duchess Sibylla (1564-1614), used the castle from 1609 as a widow's residence. Later, the castle was still repeatedly used as a residence. The castle today is a tax office.

Very nice for a little walk

The castle is great, especially the most beautiful Po Leonbergs for the higher employee Leonbergs model should have been.

The castle is one of the landmarks of the city. It lies on the edge of the old town and invites you with its adjoining Pomeranzengarten to stroll and linger. Unfortunately, you can not visit the castle itself, since today the district court and the tax office of Leonberg are located there. So if you once explored the beautiful old town of Leonberg, should definitely stop by the castle!

Wenn man eh schon in der Altstadt ist kann man mal im Garten vorbeischauen.

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.
