Ludwigsburg is a magnificent example of a baroque town. It is home to the largest baroque castle in Germany, whose construction began in 1704 under the reign of Eberhard Ludwig, the Duke of Württemberg. The Residenzschloss (Residential Palace) and its beautiful gardens attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
There are two more castles to explore when you visit the town: the Schloss Favorite (Favorite Castle) and Monrepos. With Ludwigsburg just a short ride on the S‑Bahn north from Stuttgart (a 16 km or 10 mi journey), it’s worth checking out the lively shopping streets. Plus, there are numerous music events and festivals throughout the year.
