For festive occasions of all kinds
The order hall was the largest room in the palace before the final expansion that added the new central building. Duke Eberhard Ludwig used the space for the festivities of his newly founded Württemberg hunting order. Friedrich I, who rose to the rank of King of Württemberg in 1806, turned the order hall into his throne room for his summer stays at Ludwigsburg. The actual official throne room was located in the New Palace in Stuttgart. Today, the order hall is the only remaining preserved throne room in Württemberg!
