The gardens surrounding Ludwigsburg Palace are both massive and stunning. Hidden among winding paths and tall trees are countless statues, topiary, and exotic blossoms; a "fairy tale" garden filled with storybook characters and their homes; even a second, smaller palace, dubbed "Favorite Palace," which is actually an overgrown hunting lodge. Every step through this wonderland reveals something unexpected and delightful.
