A tour in pictures
Blühendes Barock (Baroque in Bloom) is a fascinating experience, year in, year out, for young and old from near and far. The 30 or more hectares of gardens surrounding the residential palace make a worthy setting, combining tradition and contemporary garden design to produce a spectacular horticultural show.
Germany's oldest and most beautiful horticultural show, Baroque in Bloom in Ludwigsburg invites visitors to take a stroll, while away the hours and daydream. The enchantingly beautiful park offers an enticing display of flowers the whole year round – looked after by expert gardeners.
Experience nature at its most beautiful the whole year long. The season is ushered in with an enormous spring broderie in front of the palace. Marvel at the heady patterns of flowers, with tulips, daffodils and hyacinths, long before nature awakens in spring.
Witness the magical spectacle when countless rhododendrons and azaleas show off their luxuriant colours in early summer. The roses come into bloom in June, conjuring up a dazzling display of colours and scents – according to connoisseurs.
Walking through the extensive gardens is like taking a botanical journey through the world and through time. Soak up the serenity of Mediterranean landscapes. Discover exotic Far Eastern garden design. And admire the array of themed gardens, such as the Sardinian Garden, the Perennial Garden, the Romantic Perennial Garden, the Astilbe Garden, the Rhododendron Garden, the Baroque Peasant Garden, the Medicinal and Herb Garden, the Japanese Garden with Bonsai Garden or one of the Rose Gardens.
