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

Ludwigsburg is one of those places where you walk in expecting a tour of a historic palace and come out with totally different thoughts. Our tour guide, a very efficient and knowledgeable young woman was prepared to do a bi-lingual tour, but everyone on our little group was okay with German. We walked about 1 mile on parquet floors waxed... More

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
