The Neue Schloss on a hill to the N. of the town founded in 1479 enlarged in 1519 and dismantled in 1689 was afterwards partially restored.
It is now a summer-residence of the Grand Duke and is comfortably fitted up containing some good modern pictures carving family-portraits etc. The curious subterranean vaults with stone and iron doors were probably once used as dungeons.

The New Palace on the Florentinerberg in Baden-Baden was from the late 15th to the late 17th century seat of the Margrave of Baden and from 1535 the Margrave of Baden-Baden . It has been repeatedly rebuilt and expanded as a castle from the late Middle Ages . Today, the listed building is owned by Kuwaiti investors, who are currently converting the castle into a luxury hotel.
