Travel Report: Schwetzingen Palace Landscape Garden, Germany.

November 2008. In late 2008 I’d recently gotten married and my wife was a Dutch girl whose mother’s side of the family hailed from Deutschland. We lived in Brussels at the time and one weekend we decided to undertake the four-hour drive to Wiesental, a small village in the southwestern state of Baden-Württemberg.
