Urach Residential Palace

The interior is interesting, in terms of both art history and the history of Baden-Württemberg. It includes the late Gothic dirnitz (a heated reception room) on the ground floor, the Palm Room on the first floor with the ancestral proof of Count Eberhard V. of Württemberg, the baroque White Room and on the second floor, the Renaissance-era Golden Room.

On the third floor (accessible by lift) is something special: an exhibition of 22 magnificently carved and gilded ceremonial sleighs from the Museum of Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart. These recall the glittering court presided over by Carl Eugen, Duke of Württemberg (1744–1793) during the Baroque period.

An illustrated frieze leads visitors through the whole building and audio guides are also available with information about the history of Württemberg and the palace.
