The Rot and Schwarzwild Park has much to boast about: Three
lakes that are in close vicinity of each other (Bären
Lake, Neu Lake and Pfaffen Lake) and the famous Bärenschlössle
make this park one of the most popular in Stuttgart.
Along the lake shores, trees provide shade, encouraging a
long walk. Joggers have an excellent place to run - not to
mention the sensational view of the water. Park visitors also
have the opportunity to relax or have cake and coffee on the
terrace at the Bärenschlößle.
Bären Lake, Neu Lake and Pfaffen Lake form a long chain
of lakes. Duke Christoph has these lakes installed in 1566
in order to improve Stuttgart's drinking water. Up until 1998,
these lakes delivered drinking
water to Stuttgart. Today, the lakes serve as an emergency
Solitude Palace is located approximately three kilometers away
(2 miles) from the lakes.
