A walk through the Ludwigsburg exhibitions and museums
The picturesque town Ludwigsburg is one of the few planned cities of the 18th century that still exist in Germany. Created on the drawing-board, the town was built according to the absolute will of Duke Eberhard Ludwig of Württemberg. Up to the 19th century the dominance of the Court not only characterized the architecture but also the culture of the town.
Nowadays Ludwigsburg has freed itself from the courtly constraints. Today, the culture and the museums of the town are characterized by experimental art, multimedia shows and modern exhibitions. Even internationally renowned artists come to Ludwigsburg to present their latest work.
However, apart from all the new age culture, the spirit of Ludwig and the charm of the past is still visible in the extensive historical collections.
