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

Worth visiting this place . Very easy to reach here by train from stuttgart center. It takes approx. 25 min to reach the Ludwigberg station from stuttgart central station. After reaching here the palace and the garden is a walking distance. The tourist center is on the way . They provide all information to your visit comfortable. The tour guide... More

A beautiful example of a German Palace. From the manicured grounds to the Interior furnishings it is a magical trip back in time.

We decided just to visit the gardens -8.50 Euro per person as the palace and garden was 17.50 euros each. They were well kept but I thought the entrance fee was too expensive and also they DID NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS!! Really- which century are they operating in?!?!
