Board your transport in the center of Frankfurt, near the Hotel Savoy, at 9:30am, and relax on your journey to Baden-Wurttemberg. Your first stop in the region is the baroque town of Ludwigsburg, a place loved for its Versailles-inspired palace. After passing through the town to admire its colorful architecture and the marketplace, you’ll explore the palace itself.
Boasting more than 300 years of history, Ludwigsburg Palace (Residenzschloss) makes for a fascinating visit with well-preserved architecture and elaborate furnishings to admire. Learn about the palace’s past during a tour, and soak up the splendor of an authentic royal court.
Later, you’ll leave Ludwigsburg for the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Monastery Maulbronn, a 12th-century fortification that’s considered one of Europe’s finest medieval monastery complexes. Gaze at examples of Romanesque and Gothic architecture as you explore the site with the help of an audio guide, and learn about life in a monastic order during the Middle Ages.
When your audio tour ends, you’ll return to your transport for the journey back to Frankfurt. Your day trip ends with a drop-off at the start point.
