Ludwigslust Palace Grounds
Ludwigslust Palace has one of the largest and most beautiful parks in northern Germany – all 127 hectares of it. It won 2nd prize of the European Garden Award as one of the most beautifully renovated gardens and parks.
The original Baroque garden was converted into a landscape park by P.J. Lenné around the middle of the 19th century. The artistic water features are especially fascinating. In the park, the mausoleum of Princess Louise of Saxe-Gotha-Altenburg, built in the Egyptian style, the mausoleum of Grand Duchess Elena Pavlovna of Russia, a neo-Gothic church, a grotto and various monuments and a flower garden can all be seen here.
