Ludwigslust Palace and Garden

The Palace Garden of Ludwigslust has its origins in a baroque garden, laid out from 1730 onwards for Prince Christian Ludwig of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, near to his hunting lodge at Klenow. The 'Große Garten' stretched approximately across the area of today`s lawn parterre, and east of it lay the kitchen garden. Passing two pavillions, the 'Kleine Lindenallee' led to the so-called Little garden, lying between the Catholic Church and the St. John`s embankment.

When Duke Friedrich came to the throne in 1756, he transferred the court from Schwerin to Ludwigslust. After plans of the court master builder Johann Joachim Busch, a late baroque city ensemble with an extensive park came into being. The creative highlight is the canal with its numerous trick fountains.
