We drove and parked nearby. The pale has a museum tour and a palace tour. The museum piece was about art, and not that great. They have radios to listen to the tour in your language. They city also host events on the grounds, a music fest when we were there. The park right outside is perfect for children with... More

The residence is absolutely stunning. Elegant, big and well-preserved. My friend and I went on an English tour of the Queen's apartments, and it was very good. The guide was clear and prepared, but also funny, which didn't make the visit too boring. I would recommend also a relaxing visit of the residence gardens: just lovely.

I went there when there was a pumpking exposition (September 2014), it was amazing. The palace is really nice and the german guided tour was really understandable ( I'm a spanish native speaker), if you are living in Stuttgart you should really go visit.

We were married here so I may be biased. But this is a great palace for folks of any age on any day. If it's raining, go for a tour inside. Spectacular. If it's sunny, tour the grounds. In particular, take the kids to the fairy tale garden. This might be a little dated for some used to Disney world,... More

A visit to this palace is a must if you are in the vicinity of Ludwigsburg. Amazing gardens ( didn't get around to seeing them all but what I did see was exceptional and very well maintained). The palace itself was fantastic, the guided tour of both the King's and Queen's apartments was brilliant, made so by the excellent tour... More

We visit the Palace and garden when we stayed in Stuttgart - it is only a 25 minute train journey from Stuttgart main station. The Palace is, indeed, very beautiful as other reviewers have stated but, unfortunately, at the time we visited it someone, in their infinite wisdom, had decided that it would be a good idea to enhance the...

Attended a tour of half the castle and I can understand why the castle is devided into two tour, because it is big. In one hour you get to see many rooms. The are very beautiful, but in the end they look much the same.

If you have visited Versaille or the Royal Palace in Munich or other such palaces, there is probably not a lot of reason to rush to Ludwigsburg. It's unique characteristics are 1) that it escaped, remarkably, unscathed from WWII bombing and so everything you see is original (if occasionally restored) and 2) that the English guide gave the most entertaining...

Ludwigsburg is a small city with three beautiful and different castles or palaces. The main one is the Ludwigsburg Palace with large and beautiful gardens and offers and area for smaller children, Fairytale Gardens (Maerchen Garten). A tour of the castle is a must. One room has such accoustics, if you stand in the middle and clap your hands, it... More

We went to this palace on a whim for a day and it was much better than expected. We paid to just get into the gardens, which are beautiful, and then opted to buy the Schlosscard at the palace so that we can visit other castles. We took an English tour and opted to store our bags and stroller (1€... More
