The Kinderreich

In the Kinderreich, a children's museum at Ludwigsburg Residential Palace, young visitors are encouraged to do what would otherwise be strictly forbidden in other museums: touching, trying out and participating is required! Here, children four years and older and their chaperons can experience the palace with all their senses.

An visit to court is a formal affair!

Travel back in time to the Baroque period

At the Kinderreich, visitors both young and old can experience what life was like at court almost 300 years ago in a fun way. Lacking the appropriate attire for an inaugural visit to the throne room? No problem! There are plenty of options for princesses and princes to choose from in the dressing room. After a quick introduction to royal etiquette, visitors can enjoy an invitation to the ducal table.

Playing encouraged.

Fun and games for little ladies-in-waiting and knights

Luckily, courtly life consisted of more than boring receptions and ceremonies. In the games corner, Baroque boardgames, card games and games of skill await little hands. Those who are so inclined can perform a theater piece or dance number on a replica of the historic palace theater stage. Even the stage equipment works just like it did back then. A bedroom with a state bed offers the perfect spot for a quick nap after all the fun of courtly life.
