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

A beautifully kept and restored palace with plenty of artifacts and incredible woodwork with a ton of history thrown in...how could you go wrong? ;-)

...when visiting Ludwigsburg - do not miss it! Excellent tours through the castle in English with great details and a lot of interesting background stories. The owners were not as crazy as the famous king Ludwig in Bavaria, but there are also freaky parts in that castle...recommended but remember : no photos due to the original textiles...

There is nothing to dislike! The tour was perfect in length, very informative but not too much. The palace is huge with over 140 rooms. We got to tour the entire second floor that was about 67 rooms. I enjoyed this palace more than any other castle or palace I have ever visited! Don't miss this! It's only about 20... More

Awesome experience. The guide was one of the best we have ever had on our travels. The gardens are indescribable. The theatre in the castle, the church, etc are amazingly beautiful. The 3d paintings had me in awe. I have never seen such beautiful 3d painted ceilings!
