Monrepos overlooks a lake. Go boating, play golf on the nearby course or have a tasting at the winery.
In the mid-18th century, Duke Carl Eugen wanted a new hunting lodge; his architect designed a Rococo-style mini-palace. Linked to Ludwigsburg Palace and Favorite Palace via a broad avenue through a spacious park, Monrepos Palace overlooks a lake. Still owned by the Württemberg royal family, it is now a venue for events and weddings. The estate also boasts a winery, an 18-hole golf course, riding stables, a hotel, restaurant and cafés. In summer, 8,000-strong audiences attend the Ludwigsburg Festival’s popular Klassik Open Air concert, with its spectacular firework display.
- Leisure tip: Stay on the estate at the modern Schlosshotel Monrepos. Rent a boat to enjoy views of the palace from the lake.

Elegance on a grandiose scale! “Now that’s what I call a palace!” First-time visitors are amazed by the sheer size: 452 rooms in 18 buildings. This is one of Europe’s largest original Baroque complexes.
Flanking the palace on three sides, the majestic gardens called Blühendes Barock are worth a visit in their own right.
Built as a hunting lodge and summer retreat, the 300-year-old Favorite Palace is set in a wooded park.
Relaxed Italian atmosphere meets urban cool. The Market Square is the beating heart of Ludwigsburg and the perfect starting point for a stroll through the picturesque city center.
