Visit the Beautiful City of Ludwigsburg, Germany

Updated on January 18, 2017

Tour the Fantastic City of Ludwigsburg, Germany


Ludwigsburg is a fantastic and grandly scenic city in the state of Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany. It is located 12 kilometers or 7.5 miles north of the city of Stuttgart and approximately 140 kilometers or 87 miles from the city Frankfurt, Germany, which is the location of Frankfurt International Airport. It is one of our favorite sight-seeing day trips in Germany. The main attraction is the magnificent Residential Palace and the beautiful gardens around the palace. One can spend a whole day walking and touring the gardens, enjoying the scenery, taking videos and pictures, as well as visiting the museums inside Residenzschloss.

The Residential Palace (Residenzschloss) Ludwigsburg

The Residential Palace, known as Residenzschloss, was built between 1704 and 1733 during the rule of Duke Eberhard Ludwig. It is one of the greatest, most beautiful, and best-preserved baroque palaces in Germany. It houses 452 rooms in over 28 buildings. The palace is called the "Swabian Versailles" and in the past was used as the residence of the Kings of Wurttemberg.
