Ludwigsburg Museum

The Ludwigsburg Museum at the new MIK is well worth visiting.The Baroque building with its modern annexes serves as a stunning backdrop for an exhibition documenting more than 300 years of history of the planned city of Ludwigsburg. A Württembergian residence, a city representing the Baroque ideal, a centre of the arts, a city of military posts and industry – Ludwigsburg is all of these things.

Ludwigsburg Museum has around 25,000 items relating to the cultural history of Württemberg. The exhibition on the 300-year history of the planned city of Ludwigsburg contains 500 of these items. Which criteria determine the contents of the collection and the selection of the exhibition items? And what do these items tell us about the city, its history and its inhabitants?

This exhibition investigates ideas and visions for shaping the city, the people who came up with these ideas and visions, and also those who thwarted these plans. In six themed rooms, the exhibition traces ideas and visions of the city’s development, looking at its creators, but also at those whofoiled their plans. Tour the museum to find out what Ludwigsburg is all about.
