Ludwigsburg is a very special town were the words used by Leopold Mozart to describe the town he visited with his son Wolfgang Amadeus in July 1763. This is still true of Ludwigsburg today which is an active, lively and friendly town in the centre of one of the most economically sound regions in Germany. The baroque palaces and the large parks, the Baroque-in-Bloom gardens and the culture and convention centre Forum am Schlosspark, the famous porcelain factory, or the renowned palace festival are all part of the unique profile of this town.
The town was founded in 1704 on a whim of the Wurttemberg Duke Eberhard Ludwig who had his summer residence built here. This was the start of Germany’s largest baroque town which has been home to numerous historical events and famous persons. Ludwigsburg has always been closely connected with the history of the state of Wurttemberg.
Ludwigsburg is not only a town full of tradition, it is also dynamic and an attractive economic location. Many small and large companies in future-oriented industries, including a few global players, guarantee that the economy will remain strong and well-equipped to face the challenges that are expected in the future. This is especially important in the light of the buzz word globalisation and the growing competition between the European regions. A strong economic region such as Stuttgart does a lot to uphold its position as a location in the competitive European market. Ludwigsburg as one of the centres of these regions also plays an active part.
