The Pagoda Castle complex is the oldest green space in the baroque city and is located in the center of Rastatt. It impresses with its lush flowerbed and its historical significance. For example, the Pagoda Castle, which dates back to the Baroque period and is now used for art exhibitions or civil weddings, and the Einsiedeln Chapel can be found here. It was built at the request of Margravine Franziska Sibylla Augusta in 1715. The highest building in the complex is the water tower, which was put into operation at the beginning of the 20th century. The flower splendor in the complex, which changes several times a year, also attracts visitors and insects alike.
