If you are able to, plan your visit to the Palace during the pumpkin festival season. The fest is located throughout the gardens of the palace. They have over 400,000 pumpkins on display, pumpkin food and drinks and it is a great way to spend the afternoon with your friends and family.

This is certainly a very large palace, in fact there are two. You pay for the both and the gardens but you can buy an all in ticket if you have all day. There are only English tours at certain times so check before you go. You have to have a tour and there are no audio headsets if you... More

My sister lives in nearby Stuttgart, and when visiting for a long weekend this came up on TripAdvisor as a nearby attraction. Only a few Euros to get there by RB/S-Bahn. €7 for the palace tour. Unfortunately a screaming baby accompanied our group (each room is locked as you pass through- so nowhere to go with said baby- made it... More

I opted for just the Castle tour at 7 Euros. It was English speaking and because of the large crowd they made two tours out of the bunch. We saw probably over 30 rooms all decorated in 1800s authentic furniture and paintings. I was truly impressed at the castle, they guides willingness to answer questions, and the exposure to such...

The castle was the reason we came to Ludwigsburg and we were not disappointed! It is huge and well maintained set in it own large grounds. The palace was built between 1704 and 1733 by Duke Eberhard Ludwig, originally as a small hunting lodge but then the builders moved in and it seems that they just did not stop. It... More

The interior of the palace is only available to view by tour. We went on the 1:30 english tour led by Martina. She was an incredible tour guide who spoke fantastic english and managed to make every story and room interesting. I'm not a fan of history but she managed to keep me fully interested for the 2 hours the... More

I honestly have to say I was blown away by the whole experience. I had no idea this place even existed after being in Germany about 10 times in the last 25 years. You can spend the whole day on a lengthy tour (~2 hours), in the gardens all over the palace grounds (~2-3 hours), in the Barock Galerie (~1... More

On the Perspectiv German route: Schlosstheater Ludwigsburg, with one of the finest preserved theatre machines in Europe. Unfortunaly not open for the public. Nice little theatre museum though.

The castle in Ludwigsburg is reachable in 10 minutes from the Sbahn station Ludwigsburg, and there are a lot of signs which guids you trough the city. If you reach the entry, you can choose between different options. I chose the combiticket with which you can entry the beautiful garden, get a guided tour trough the "Residenzschloss" and "Schoss Favorite".... More

The enormous and impressive Ludwigsburg palace, built in Baroque style in the 17th century, is in fact a complex of the main palace, two other smaller palaces, a park that includes a lake and a fountain, and three museums featuring Baroque various aspects. The main palace entrance is free, but a tour in the palace, in the park and the... More
