I like this palace much better than Versailles. It's beautiful with a fraction of the tourists that go to Paris, and the garden are fabulous. Also this palace is very unique in that all the furniture is original!

This is a great place to visit, with a lot of museums, beautiful gardens, architecture and a lot of green areas. It was relaxing and delightful. I enjoyed a lot the Fashion Museum.

You have to take the tour of the castle, we came as 3 students and for 3,50€ saw entire castle from inside. I lost track of time but it must've been at least an hour. We came very late in the day so got a last tour and since we had other places planned we didn't see the garden, but... More

As children my sister and I were taken to the Schloss to visit the rose gardens and the Fairy Gardens around the back. Having not visited in over 37 years I was worried it may have changed a bit but I'm delighted to report that the place is as beautiful as ever. In fact it hasn't changed at all but... More

The Märchengarten is in the castle parks of the Ludwigsburger Schloss in beautiful surroundings. It features 40 fairy tales, lovingly arranged and many with interactive features. The park was opened in 1957 and has been tastefully upgraded over time. It's quaint, maybe kitschy, but it's a lot of fun. Enter via Blühendes Barock, same ticket. Almost all activities inside are...

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Residenz Palace in Ludwigsburg. It took just after 90 minutes and there was a wide variety of rooms to see - this seemed like really good value after the typically short tours we've been on at some other German castles (e.g. Neuschwanstein). Louise Becker, our guide for the English tour,... More

We stopped here on the way through to the Christmas markets and although it was the off season and the gardens were not at their best the place was obviously beautiful. Visit int eu spring or summer when everything is in bloom. Highly recommended.

The palace is surrounded by beautiful gardens and the interior can be visited at fixed times with guides. One or two tours per day are performed in English language. The furnitures are not all original but you get a good understanding on the way of life a few hundred years ago.

One of the best tours ever. We got to see over 70 rooms. The guide was incredibly knowledgeable and spoke great English. We had a really good time. The gardens were amazing as well and great fun to walk through.
