Solitude Palace

A turbulent history

Collections

Solitude Palace, in its idyllic location in Leonberg forest, is named for the French word for "loneliness." It was exactly this seclusion and the surrounding forest that prompted Duke Carl Eugen von Württemberg to use the palace as a retreat and hunting lodge. In World War I, because of its location, it was used as a military hospital.
