Family Vacation 2016: [Solitude Palace, Germany]

Tuesday, May 31, 2016

On an overcast and rainy day we had the chance to visit Schloss Solitude Palace, it was perfect as we nearly had the place to ourselves. The magnitude, details, and architecture were simply amazing!! The only thing better was watching our little people run around, explore, and be among a most royal atmosphere.
This particular palace was a hunting retreat, commissioned by a Duke, built in the 1700's.

The castle overlooked the nearest city; so, we enjoyed the beautiful views as the kids ran wild and snarfed pb&j sandwiches - it was a most regal picnic. ;)
There was an absolutely perfectly manicured, tree-lined walkway behind the palace, so we took advantage of the picturesque spot.
We didn't go inside or take a tour, but peeking through some open windows, we saw an amazing ballroom with absolutely stunning chandeliers - seriously, I can't even imagine royal life..?!?! Maybe once the kids are more refined ;), we'll venture indoors with them; until then running free (& posing) on the steps and in the yard will do just fine.

  3. WOW!!! What a stunning place. I was going to ask how you guys took a tour of that place with four kids in tow but I see you just stuck to the outside :) Probably the same thing I would do. That being said, I definitely don't think you were missing out because the view of the outside and the view in general would gorgeous!
