Ludwigslust Palace, Ludwigslust

(4.1/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Ludwigslust Palace is a stately home or schloss in the town of Ludwigslust, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, northern Germany. It was built as a hunting lodge, rebuilt as a luxurious retreat from the ducal capital, Schwerin, then became for a time the center of government. It was the "joy" of Prince Christian Ludwig, the son of the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, hence the name Ludwigslust.OriginsLudwigslust had its origins in a simple hunting lodge within a day's ride of the ducal capital, Schwerin. In 1724 Prince Christian Ludwig, the son of the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, decided to build a hunting lodge on this site, near a hamlet called Klenow. Even after he became duke in his turn in 1747, he passed most of his time at this residence, which he called Ludwigslust .

  • Travel Tip: you can park free right in front of the door (a parking disc!), I've noticed this, unfortunately too late after I a street further bought even a parking ticket. From the outside the building makes here much, also with the empty space before. The Interior can't keep up here in my view, only the room is quite nice - compared to the other State castles in MV, there to see here only little conserved so that the visit of the Interior is not compulsory, but quite pleasant due to the prevailing visitors emptiness.

  • I watch the Schloss Ludwigslust for over 2 decades and could visit for the first time after the renovation and opening of the East Wing in March 2016 itself. Designated former baroque hunting lodge offers "mecklenburgisches Versailles", also as the Sanssouci of the North through the Golden Hall over two floors, even if here mostly cardboard for the apparent pomp is responsible. It shows a comprehensive picture, but also watch collection; Some rooms are furnished, a magic stove made of Meissen porcelain is among the exhibits as well as coins and weapons. A small shop is located in the entrance area, as well as a cloakroom with lockers and toilets. During a stay in Ludwigslust may Is visit of the Castle including the beautiful grounds a must.

  • For years on our travel to Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, the castle is an important point on our arrival. It is the focal point of the town of Ludwigslust, and is architecturally very interesting. It's already exciting, what about out of cardboard to make.

  • Beautiful wall coverings, ivory carvings,, unique cork carvings of roman moments and ruins, beautiful golden hall, parquet floors, unique fire screens restorations still in prpgress. Spent two hours on tour. audio guide helps.
  • Super Location
  • Beautiful and large castle garden, you can be up there almost. It is somewhat a pity that in the Swiss House at the moment nothing is. I don't know whether this may change in the summer. I was not in the Castle Museum itself, yet, this is still on the to-do list! Also everything on statues in the garden is covered over the winter, therefore more worth a visit during the warmer seasons.

  • The Castle alone is already worth a visit. Nestled in the Castle Park, with its many interesting plants, the viewer never get bored. Very worth a visit
