Description

Travel back in time as you visit 2 of the most stunning historic sites near Frankfurt. Set off into the region of Baden-Württemberg, home to the Versailles-like Ludwigsburg Palace and 12th-century Maulbronn Monastery. Stroll the extravagant grounds of the palace before getting a look at monastic life in the Middle Ages.

From Frankfurt journey through the countryside to Baden-Württemberg, a region known for its evergreen scenery and traditional villages. Your first stop of the day is the baroque town of Ludwigsburg, filled with colorful architecture and sprawling gardens. Admire the views as you pass through the city before eventually arriving at the palace.

With your guide leading the way, you wander through the 18th-century palace, catching sight of the elaborate furnishings and spectacular art that's spread out over more than 450 rooms. Hear tales of the royal court who built the palace in Versailles' image before hopping back in the coach to continue your tour.

After a short drive, you reach Maulbronn Monastery, one of the best-preserved medieval monastery complexes in Europe. Here, with an audio guide, explore the UNESCO-listed fortification to see the Gothic and Romanesque structures surrounded by 12th-century turreted walls. Gain insight into what life was like in the monastery during the Middle Ages before making the drive back to Frankfurt.
