This is a must see we got there early on a weekday. We easily got on a English tour. Our tour guide was great she was really knowledgeable and took time to answer any question in each room we were in. They were cleaning and working in one room we were supposed to have went in since we could not... More

The palace is enormous. For me the best part are the gardens. You need to wear comfy shoes and allow a lot of time because you'll have a lot of walking to do!! A must with children is the fairy tale garden. While we were there, there was also a straw festival on. Very impressive sculptures had been built out... More

We visited Residenzschloss a week ago. Since there is not much to do in Stuttgart, visiting Ludwigsburg was a perfect activity to do. We took S5 train from Stuttgart Main Station and easily found the palace. They did not have an English guide and unfortunately you have to exlore the rooms with a German speaking guide. They do not let... More

Intended to see the palace but the english speaking tours were unavailable. The guide said "come tomorrow". The garden is nice. They do not take credit card.

Would highly recommend a private tour of the palace. There is so much to learn, that it's not possible without your own guide. Our group of 19 had a wonderful English speaking guide, Wolfgang, who had such a flair for keeping everyone interested that we didn't want the 90 minute tour to end. We had ages from 18 - 82... More

in Germany, this castle was voted the #2 favorite destination (behind neuschwanstein). that should be all one needs to know. the grounds, the palace, the guides; all was first rate. worthy of revisiting.

The rose garden and the rest of the grounds were in full blume when we were there in June. Just fabulous to look at -- especially stopping and smelling the roses. The English speaking tour guide was great (the tours were at 1:30 and 3:15 on the weekend day we were there). You see a lot of the palace, but... More

There is an English tour guide, Martina, who can probably find the most boring room anywhere and make it interesting. Room after room, she brought the palace to life with stories of those who lived there before. I only wish we were able to take pictures. Other than the palace tour, though, there is so much around the palace to... More

I live close by Ludwigsburg and whenever someone comes to visit me from my Canadian friends I will take them there. I recommend taking a tour inside. The price is absolutely affordable and the woman who does the english tour (at least the last couple times I went) makes a fantastic job. It is not boring I find, but very... More

A very nice place. Specially, if you would like to have a walk, and enjoy some sunshine in a park. It's not so far away from city center, so it's a perfect place for a picnic or to spent a lazzy sunday.
