Ludwigsburg Castle

This building, together with the town itself, still contrives to provide the impression of an 18th century royal capital. One of Germany's largest and most magnificent Baroque palaces, its construction was begun in 1704 by Duke Eberhard Ludwig of Württemberg. The opulently furnished interior reflects the development in style from late Baroque to Rococo and thence to Empire. The garden was restored in the near vicinity of the palace in Baroque style ("Baroque in Bloom").
