...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!

I had the luck of being in Ludwigsburg during beutiful, warm and sunny winter day. It was plenty of families and the castle experience is very realistic. I could not visit the whole residence though, since it is really huge! It's a good place were a family could spend a day out, both receiving historical details in a long tour... More

My father and I visited during a weekday and had the entire palace to ourselves! Our Docent, Ms. Anderson, was one of the most knowledgeable and engaging guides I have ever had. Congenial and patient, she answered all of our questions thoroughly and had finer points and vignettes to illustrate our education. Plan to spend at LEAST an hour and... More

Beautiful palace with interesting history. We toured the part of the palace you could go to on your own, and also the special exhibitions. The rooms we saw were lovely, and the audioguide also adds context to the experience. However, the special exhibition of clothing was outstanding. If you are going soon, it's worth a look. Unfortunately we didn't have... More

The palace was well worth the train ride from Stuttgart. The place is very large and the English tour was good but relatively fast for the amount of area to be covered. Be sure to stop the guide and ask as many questions as you can. What was interesting was that much of what's there is original and unrestored. For... More

Our visit to the Palace was something we will never forget. The buildings and statutes were well worth seeing. The thing that drew us to the palace was the gardens. There is one footpath which my friend told me to go up. As soon as you step onto it a fountain starts beneath you leaving you a wet patch on... More

This is the real deal! You are standing not only in the castle, but among the original fabrics, and trimmings from the sixteenth century. It sent a chill up my spine in more than one room. The tour can feel a bit rushed depending on which tour guide you get, but it is quite good if you appreciate interiors, and... More

A great place to visit (and free of charge) on a winters Sunday afternoon and followed by a walk through the gardens to the double towered church in a really nice square that had good cafes with stylish blankets serving and excellent tea and waffle.
