ENGLISH-LANGUAGE WALKING TOUR OF LUDWIGSBURG
Sunday, October 30th at 9:45
Nearest train station: Ludwigsburg Bahnhof
Host: Michelle Niese-Mendel
In our quest to learn more about the surrounding areas of Stuttgart, we are stopping in at Ludwigsburg next. The Ludwigsburg Schloss (castle) is always an interesting topic, but the city and surrounding community are equally fascinating.
Settled in the stone and bronze ages and occupied by the Romans at the end of the 1st century, Ludwigsburg’s history is rich. Years later in the early 1700s, the Ludwigsburg Palace was built by Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Württemberg and the settlement was established. The royal seat oscillated between Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg between 1730 and 1800. Kings, queens, and mistresses…we will hear all about the intrigue of royal life in this baroque city on this 90-minute tour.
Spaces are limited to 25 participants; members and their families are welcome to attend this event. Strollers for little ones are OK. Our tour starts AND ends at the fountain in the middle courtyard of the castle (Großer Mathildenhof on the Mömpelgard Street). We will meet there at 9:45 and our tour will start promptly at 10:00.
After the tour, all participants are invited to join us for an optional breakfast buffet (not a brunch) at a restaurant to be determined by participants prior to the event.
