The gardens were beautiful, but we came specifically for the pumpkin festival. We were not disappointed. The displays were wonderful and the food was great, especially the pumpkin soup and pumpkin waffles.

The garden around the castle is a must see! The entrance fee of EUR 6 (adult) is not cheap but its worth every EUR. Take some time. Behind every corner it opens to anouther trmendous view and large garden.

I stayed a few days in Ludwigsburg & for a friend’s recommendation I checked out the Blühendes Barock. Wow, it was wonderful! I spent 3-4 hours wondering in this enormous territory. Admiring the flowers, plants, colors, nice fountains; hidden lovely parks within. Smiling while walking...More
