Day Trip - Stadt Ludwisburg

ludwigsbur..any_014.jpgThis morning, Sunday, found me overly tired but happy. After a great introduction to Germany I was ready to tackle some sites on my own. First on the list was Ludwisburg. My original intention was the visit the baroque Residential Palace but I totally missed it.

After walking down the street to catch the S-Bahn train from my hotel, I found myself at Stadt Ludwisburg within 5 minutes of stepping on the train. Right away I liked this beautiful city. It is relatively small and pretty with some gorgeous buildings and pretty sites.

I started to walk down some obcscure street in the hopes of finding the palace. Smart me didn't bring a map so I was basically sight see blind. It didn't matter as this city offered so many gorgeous attractions.

I spent about 3 hours walking around and taking in Ludwisburg and the beauty that she is.

After my three hour adventure, I had to find my way back home. Since Kornwestheim is only 1 train stop away from Ludwisburg you would think getting home would be easy. But for me, who is directionally challenged, it was a bit difficult. I didn't know which direction the my train was so I attempted to ask for help.

People in Ludwisburg and Kornwestheim for that matter, don't really seem to speak much english so good luck if you are lost. After running around for about 15 minutes, I getting on board the wrong train, going to the wrong next city, hopping off, and then boarding the correct train, I finally made it home. :)

I was very pleased to see Kornwestheim and get off the train. I had a great day of seeing pretty things, experiencing a part of Europe alone and most of all, feeling very safe during all of it.

Up next?? First day of work in Germany.
