Alexandre Dumas visited Rastatt in late September of 1838. The writer was interested in history and penned the novels "The Three Musketeers" and "The Count of Monte Cristo" only a few years later. "Despite its ruinous condition, I visited the palace,"he wrote of the residence. "Even without its historic significance, it warranted a stop. […] The tapestries, the porcelain as well as the margravine's chinoiseries would evoke delight in our own Rococo salons."
