We went to Ludwigsburg Palace partly to see the palace (it was open on a Monday and many things are closed on Mondays) and partly to see the Pumpkin exhibits that were being shown. We loved the pumpkin exhibits and the food that was being sold. Definitely try the pumpkin soup! We took the 1:30 English tour and had an excellent guide. He kept the tour very interesting. My father has a bad knee and wasn't sure he could do a 90 min tour but they have lightweight folding chairs you can take with you. It was perfect - he could sit down in the rooms where we spent a little more time. If you're into German history this is an excellent tour.

This is a beautiful place. Just keep in mind, that you will walk for about 4 hours.
The best of all I find land-design solutions and a little castle on top of a cliff over the lake for young princes and princesses.

Group of 14 of us were guided round this magnificent edifice by a good English speaking guide. (Max group number is 22). He injected a lot of humour in to what otherwise could have been a bit of death by repetition. Had a lot of knowledge on the history of the place and its residents.
Some fantastic art and architecture on display. Only problem was I felt a little rushed to move along as another group of people hot on our tails, and not enough time to look at some of the stuff. Total length of tour 1 3/4 hr.

Every year this palace opens up its grounds for a huge pumpkin festival featuring contests, food, and an exhibit of hundreds of different pumpkins from around the world. The theme of this year's exhibit was "sports", so there were numerous dioramas constructed out of thousands of colorful pumpkins depicting various Olympic sporting events. The signs were in English as well as German, so even tourists had information on what was going on. Pumpkin-based food and drink were available - including pumpkin burgers, pumpkin fries, and pumpkin sparkling wine for those adventurous souls willing to give it a try. Of course traditional fare (beer and bratwursts) was on hand too - so there is something for everyone. In addition, there were also rides and activities for younger children, so this festival is fun for the whole family. A nominal entry fee is required; eight Euro for adults, but children, students and families get a discount. If you are looking for something fun and different to see or do while you are in the area, then visiting this event is a must.

The palace tour was great. We planned to do the 11:00 English tour and our tour guide was very good. Answered all of our questions and was great with our children.
The pumpkin fest was a great place for lunch and the kids to play. But pack your mittens ...it was cold even in the palace.
