Schloss Gottesau

The Gottesaue Palace (German: Schloss Gottesau/Gottesaue) is one of the oldest buildings in Karlsruhe erected in 1588, destroyed in 1689, provisionally rebuilt, and ravaged by fire in 1735. The castle was badly damaged by American bombs in May 1944. It lay in ruins for a long time, but was then completely renovated and now contains the State College of Music.
