In one of the town’s oldest Baroque buildings, the lively interactive and hands-on displays in the Ludwigsburg Museum explain how the town was planned and developed.
The story of Ludwigsburg
Ludwigsburg was created by (and named for) Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Württemberg. Between 1718 and 1723, he not only built Germany’s largest Baroque palace, but also planned every detail of the surrounding community. All this is explained in the museum’s main exhibition, "300 Years - 300 Objects." Inside, there is a pretty courtyard and a 130-year-old blacksmith’s forge that operated until 1992.
The museum also reflects the Duke’s kingdom of Württemberg, while regularly-changing special exhibitions focus on topics inspired by our past and our present. And, we are easy to find. Our neighbors include the Tourist Information Office and the art association gallery (known as MIK: Museum Information Art).
- Family tip: Ludwigsburg Museum is known for its fun and informative workshops for children. While parents spend time at the exhibition or strolling through town, the kids can do handicrafts, or even help to design and build special projects.
- Extra tip: Entry is usually free. You decide what you want to pay.
