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.
