The castle of Ludwigsburg was considered the party castle of it's time (since Versailles was inn immersed to difficult with insects). Even that it is smaller it has a special charm and the gardens are beautiful, too. Special to me are the guided tours of the castle! Unfortunately not all the "special tours" are available in English. They are particular... More

I did not go inside the palace, but visited the garden show that was going on on the grounds. We then walked in the beautiful public gardens which was nice and relaxing.

The Schloss was commenced in 1704 and was completed fully 29 years later. But they rather wanted a Palace in town, so this little one was somewhat neglected often. The English and Americans forgot to bomb it during the war, so today it has been spruced up, along with its two other little palaces, Favorite, and Monrepos. You can not... More

I enjoyed walking around the grounds but when I tried going inside I kept being asked to join a tour even though I paid 17 Euro for the grounds and palace. I'm deaf and don't want a guided tour. I asked for the English text translations but kept getting the 'I don't know' from the guides. If you want a... More

We did the English tour on 1 May 15 and found the guide to be incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The palace itself is wonderful with so much history and has been well maintained - quite a treasure. It was a wet day so we didn't look around all the grounds but I'd go back to look at it again.

What I thought would be just another palace in Europe was fantastic. Fully furnished palace gave a real feel of the times and a guided tour with great stories made it a great place to visit. The Gardens were also beautiful to just walk through. Highly recommended

I'm not one for taking towards like this but this one was okay. It's nice to imagine the history and quite impressive as you walk through the palace. I probably wouldn't do it a second time though

We did not go into the palace because we hit the gardens first and ran out of time. Not because we did not budget a day here (we did), but because we spent hours exploring the gardens and could not get enough of their charm. We were lucky enough to visit during the pumpkin festival and it was inspiringly weird.... More

A must do, absolutely! If you're staying in Stuttgart, it's definitely worth the trip out there, but make sure you are there in time for the guided tour! It was the best guided tour of a palace I've ever had! The tour guide was fantastic, and did a good job of going through the sorts of things that were everyday... More
