Please note:
The garden show "Blühendes Barock Ludwigsburg" is operated by a separate company, the Blühendes Barock Gartenschau Ludwigsburg GmbH. This company operates independently of the State Palaces and Gardens of Baden-Württemberg. Therefore, during the season of the "Blühendes Barock Ludwigsburg" horticultural show, from mid-March to early November, the only free access to the Ludwigsburg Residence Palace and all the museums located therein is via Schlossstraße. At all other entrances, an admission ticket for the "Blühendes Barock" must be purchased or an admission ticket "Baroque Experience", which is valid for the Blühendes Barock and the Ludwigsburg Residenzschloss.
