If you're in the area, you must make the trip to see Ludwigsburg Palace. The grounds are stunning. The English Tour Guide was fantastic - she taught the group so much interesting history. I'd highly recommend taking the palace tour and spending some time strolling the grounds!

The palace is like any other palace, although the stories are interesting. Try to go there in spring/summer because the garden is impressive and you will spend the whole day enjoying the flowers and trees. In the garden it is also the "fairytale garden" where kids can enjoy scene from almost all the children stories and can participate to them:... More

I visited the Ludwigsburg Palace with my friends. Lots of beautiful gardens to walk through, though it was early March and not at it's peak. The castle is really cold, it's not heated, so take warm clothes :) We took the English tour at 3:15 pm and it was very nice. Our tour guide ( a young man ) was... More

I visited the Ludwigsburg Palace with my family for the first time. We took the English tour at 1:30pm and it was awesome. Jackie was an amazing tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and welcoming. I strongly recommend taking the tour as you will get to know more about the Residenzschloss and generally about the history of Ludwigsburg. The cafe... More

The outside of this hunting lodge turned residence/palace is worth a look; especially if you haven't seen other palaces yet. This one doesn't hold much in its uniqueness; the artifacts and rooms inside (which you can only see with an additional group tour ticket of €5) isn't anything over the top either. All in all, much better palaces/residences in other... More

The grounds are quite extensive. Lots of beautiful gardens to walk through, though it was winter and not at it's peak. The fairytale garden is closed during the winter. There is a fun Rapunzel tower that you can climb up to. Be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to explore the grounds. The tour takes about an hour and... More

After looking at the website it appeared there were a couple of English speaking tours every day. We took the train from Stuttgart (great way to get there only 20 mins or so) and walked to the palace. Unfortunately when we arrived at 10.30am the lady informed us the tour wouldn't be til 2.30pm. Luckily the Christmas markets were nearby... More
