If you visit Stuttgart, have at least a half a day for Ludwigsburg, as well. It's easy to reach by S-bahn train. This Baroque Palace is extraordinary, most beautiful, outstanding. It's a unique part of European history. There is a huge garden around the palace....More

German lesson: berg = hill and burg = palace. So if you visit a German town that ends in burg, you’re likely to find a palace! Ludwigsburg Residential Palace is one of the largest Baroque buildings in Europe to survive in its original condition. Tours...More
