It was mad king Ludwig's copy of Versailles. He built it so he could fantasise about being a mighty absolute monarch - somewhat inappropriate in Bavaria in the second half of the 19th century.

Schloss Ludwigsburg

@Nemo, Great pictures

The former royal residence Schloss Ludwigsburg is at least that much a good copy of Versailles than Herrenchiemsee.
From above at Google-Maps
With its 452 rooms it is supposed to be Germanys largest palace.

Indoors it is full of splendor. Moreover for its 300 year anniversary about 100 Mio € restauration was completed this year.

Castle Church (still used for marriages)


Theater (still used as well)


Marble Hall


inner castle courtyard


Throne Room


Eastern Corridor


Western Corridor



The whole site is including a myths and botanic garden called "Blooming Baroque" and two further small palaces.

Emichsburg


Unspectacular part of the garden


Favorite (Hunting)


Monrepos (Water)

The castles are very beautiful,and impressive Like Polish Castles and Palaces ... I travel through Germany, I spend 1 week here then 3 weeks in Poland ...

As I see, Germany and Poland have some of the most beautiful castles and palaces in Europe.

I observe too, that Germany has many castles but Poland seems to have much more and palaces ... we travel through berlin-poznan-leszno-wroclaw... and near Poznan we stay 1 week to visit some, and in so few time we see 35-40 of them in 20 km around this city, and near wroclaw, the same number ... incredible ... and most of them were restored and so beautiful and very very big ... not littles palaces but most of them were huge ...

In France where I live we have maybe 3 or 4 castles in 50 km around our city but not so a big number (35-40 ) like in Poland ... I could not believe ... I learn in lonely planet guide that Silesia and Wielkapolska have the biggest numbers of castles & palaces in all of Europe ... You need 3 month to see them all in only this two region ... and here number really mean beautiful ... most of them have a great architecture and inside were also impressive ... many of them are luxurious hotels ... you can enter inside and see how it's look like ... and others are museums with very beautiful insides ... one of them was Pszczyna, never in France I see such a beautiful Palaces ... but it wasn't alone so beautiful ... Lancut whaaa ... and many many others ...

germany and poland are so beautiful country ... I observe that this two country are more similar than germany & france ... it seems that they have more in common that france & germany ...

I love Europe ... the most beautiful of all continents maybe not in nature but of course in architecture ...

We have little time, so we only could visit 6 interiors of Polish Palaces, I will never forget this ... it was so beautiful, in others we stay 5 minutes because they were hotels ... or private homes ...

Although in Poland we have quite a lot, I bet Germany has more palaces and castles than Polnad.

Big part of today's Poland belonged to Germany for many centuries this is why the architecture is similar.

BTW German palaces are amazing

No no, in many guides is written that is poland in this region !
( region : germany + central europe + austria ) ... never in bavaria you can find 40 palaces in all 20 km ...

Where i were in Poland, i were surprise because polish peoples seems not really know well their country, when i say to a polish friend that mazurias was one of the most beautiful region in Europe, he don't beleive me !!!

... and when i show him the photo of the castle of pszczyna he think it was in france .... haw can it be possible ... many polish are so well educated and many of you really don't know your country ... sometime tourists in poland know much than polish peoples about your beautiful nature, cities ... and the most funny and sad I think is that when you say to a polish people that the country he lives is very beautiful, he never belive ... what happen to you, that even you don't believe foreigners or tourist ... ?

I think I know Poland quite well

I agree that there are areas (for example Lower Silesia) with many castles and palaces.

It might be true that Lower Silesia has the highest number of castles and palaces per 1 sq km, but I wouldn't say that total number of castles and palaces in Poland is bigger than for example in Germany.

I don't Know, it's written like this in many guides so I think that it is impossible that they lie in so many guides ... and they speak about all region ( germany, austri + all central europe ) and not alone silesia per km ...

These pictures are superb, on another point the destruction of the Palace in Berlin has to be one of the great architectural crimes of the 20th century.

...adds up to about 30.000 palaces in Poland.

... results in about 5000.

Sorry, I doubt that numbers by far.
And what is the explanation since those uncountable palaces had to be financed and build? Poland wasn´t that rich throughout history to afford this.
Last but not least: Where are the pics?

There are other points to go into detail. For example that the former Prussian land in the East wasn´t Prussias centre (which was Berlin) and populated for a large part below average. Hence one would expect there rather less palaces.

In Germany you will find the most palaces (not talking about larger villas with some pillars put in front and the like but something worthy to be called "palace") near former kingdoms which were
Bavaria (Munich),
Prussia (Berlin),
Saxony (Dresden) and
Württemberg (Stuttgart & close-by Ludwigsburg).
Not to forget Vienna in today´s Austria.
Besides there were some powerful principalities like Baden (Karlsruhe) or Welfen (Hannover).

Probably the competition between principalities in the very federal Germany is an important reason for large palaces in every residence.

Amazingly other big and historic relevant cities as Cologne (No 4) or Hamburg (No 2 population) haven´t served as profane residences and miss palaces. Instead you will find lots of adorable churches due to clerical impact in Cologne, whereas Hamburg is famous for rich merchant´s houses due to it´s Hanseatic era. Frankfurt as German´s number 5 has also never been residence of a prominent dynasty.

Of course there are palaces scattered all-over the country in Germany as well. But for all the above I consider the mentioned towns to hold a significant higher density and/or grandiosity regarding palaces.

Stuttgart: Pano with Königsbau-Passagen, New Palace and new Art Museum
