Rastatt : Michelin's recommendations
Rastatt was well-known in the early 18C as the town of Louis Guillaume de Bade (1665-1707), a.k.a. Louis the Turk. Faced with the threat of an invasion from France, he abandoned Baden-Baden and turned Rastatt into a stronghold with a castle on the scale of his aspirations. Two treaties between France and the Empire are associated with the name of the town: one signed in 1714 marked the end of the War of Spanish Succession and the other, signed in 1799, backed up the Treaty of Campo Formio, which had been signed two years earlier.
