The Kürbisausstellung Ludwigsburg is the largest pumpkin festival in the world. Hosted on the grounds of the Residential Palace, your senses will be astounded by the many varieties and forms of pumpkins. It’s a wonderful event for the whole family to enjoy and runs across the whole months of September and October.
Wander the gardens to see the many pumpkin sculptures and installations on the year’s theme. Taste a delicious range of pumpkin dishes, including soup, pastries, fritters, and even wine! Examine the rows and rows of marvelous pumpkins in the exhibition, featuring hundreds of different pumpkin and gourd varieties in all shapes and sizes. Marvel at the enormous pumpkins competing in the great Weigh Off. There are also special events to try at different times of the festival, including live music, paddling in a canoe made of a hollowed out pumpkin, carving your own Halloween pumpkin, and even smashing pumpkins on the final day.
