Ludwigsluster Schlossstraße is the site of today's town hall. However, the two-story brick building was not always the seat of the city administration. It was built in 1780 by Johann Joachim Busch and initially served as a court house, the upper floor of which housed the Carton-Fabrique.
Until about 1817, papier-mâché was produced at Schlossstraße 38, from which art objects and decorative elements for the castle were made. Many unique pieces can still be admired in Ludwigslust Castle today. In those days, the former court house was also the prisoner's house, with both the court council and the prison guard living on the first floor. In 1884 a new period in the eventful history of the house began. The newly founded municipal savings bank moved into the upper floor. Later it also took over the premises on the first floor. The Sparkasse was the main user of the building until 1935. Since then, Schlossstrasse 38 has been the municipal town hall for Ludwigslust. In order to be able to cope with the wide range of tasks, it was first extended with an annex in the early 1990s, after which the historic town hall was extensively renovated. The municipal library has also been housed here since then.
