By train and without traffic jams comfortably to the Ludwigslust Palace Garden.
In the palace park of Ludwigslust the visitor can enjoy the idyll for hours - and then there is the tour of the halls and galleries inside the palace.
With its almost 130 hectares, it is one of the most beautiful parks in the whole of northern Germany: Ludwigslust Palace Park. In the mid-19th century, the original baroque garden was transformed into a landscape park in the English style, with a wide network of paths through the lush greenery. Visitors stroll here between flower gardens and enchanting water features, can visit two mausoleums, a neo-Gothic church and various monuments. A free app with an audio guide can be downloaded onto a smartphone, which also includes audio stories for children. After visiting the park, it's worth taking a tour of the baroque palace itself, which Duke Friedrich von Mecklenburg-Schwerin had built between 1772 and 1776. The centerpiece is the Golden Hall with monumental columns and magnificent crystal chandeliers. In addition, outstanding works of art can be admired on almost 3,000 square meters, including the "painted animal park" (menagerie series) by the French court painter Jean-Baptiste Oudry as well as Meissen porcelains and ivory works.
The special tip: After the tour, stop at the castle café for homemade pies and cakes, with a great view of the park from the terrace.
Good connection by train: It only takes a good 30 minutes by train from Schwerin's main station to Ludwigslust station, and from there it's about a 15-minute walk to the castle.
