Ludwigsburg Residential Palace (Residenzschloss Ludwigsburg) is one of the few Baroque buildings to have survived the tumultuous history of the last centuries almost unscathed. This truly palatial complex stands out not just for its impressive size, but also for its sumptuous interiors. Another feature is the unique blend of three quite different architectural styles: Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism.
A rich variety of museums and exhibitions, for both young and old, help to make Ludwigsburg Residential Palace a popular tourist attraction: the Keramikmuseum (Ceramics Museum) houses a large collection; the Modemuseum (Fashion Museum) showcases clothing from the 18 th century to the 20 th ; the private apartments of Duke Carl Eugen, with their original décor, boast rare and valuable furniture and accessories; and the Barockgalerie (Baroque Gallery) features an array of historical works by a selection of artists.
Kinderreich is an interactive museum where young visitors are positively encouraged to touch the exhibits and try things for themselves. Children aged four years and up can dress up and learn about life in the Duke’s court.
