The former palace grounds include both paved and dirt/gravel paths which take runners past a number of great attractions including a landscape garden, a swinging pedestrian bridge, museums, galleries, and the lovely palace square itself. For a longer route, runners can easily connect with the Neckar River Path and Rosenstein Park.
