Ludwigsburg Castle is often referred to as the Versailles of Southern Germany.  Its baroque palaces and extensive grounds are one of the highlights of the German state of Baden-Württemburg. 

   

   

   

The palace and grounds conjure up visions of an 18th Century royal capital.  They date to 1704 when Duke Eberhard Ludwig of Württemburg commissioned its construction.

   

The Ludwigsburg complex consist not only of the main palace and grounds, but also of Schloss Favorite and the Favorite Park.

During the fall, the Ludwigsburg grounds are home to a pumpkin festival, featuring pumpkin themed food and pumpkin art.

Visiting times Monday to Friday run from 9am-12pm and 1pm-5pm March through November, and 10:30am-11:45am and 1:30pm-3:00pm during the winter.  On Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, the palace is open 10:30am-11:30am and 1pm-4pm.
