Visiting the childhood town of a friend was a delight. How could we leave town and drive back to Hamburg without visiting the palace. It was a joyful wandering......there is a room with fabulous paintings ......and quietly appreciated without the hoardes of tourists. There has...More

We came across Ludwigslust quite by accident while meandering through Germany. We stopped for lunch and walked over to the palace. It is a beautiful late baroque chateau set in a fantastic garden. The chateau and grounds are open to visitors. Walking in the grounds...More

We came to Ludwigslust to do family history research, and were pleasantly surprised to find this lovely palace. We arrived on a Monday and both the palace and records office were closed, so we spent several relaxing hours in the stunning baroque gardens. The canal...More

Ludwigslust Palace was a disappointment. Most times, historical places of interest will "preserve history" as the cornerstone of the attraction and draw for tourists. Unfortunately, Ludwigslust Palace is focused on preserving the wallpaper. The interior is not original with very limited furnishings of the period...More

The Schloss is not as interesting as the Schloss at Schwerin but even so it well worth visiting. In good weather the grounds and gardens landscaped in a naturalistic style would be the highlight of any visit. The cafe in the Schloss is also recommended...More
