Delve into the world of the duchesses

An attractive Renaissance-stylebuilding, Kirchheim Palace is probably the best-maintained example of the fortresses built by the duchy of Württemberg. And as the only remaining widows' residence, or dower house, it offers a rare glimpse into 19th century home life.
