I just HAVE to tell you about this amazing place in Ludwigsburg. A town which is close to my hometown Stuttgart. There is this wonderful castel called "Residenzschloss Ludwigsburg". It is settled in a beautiful garden - "Blühendes Barock".
We went there today with our kids and had no idea that they host the world's largest pumpkin exhibition. Which is simply amazing. There are figures that look like Dinosaurs, Elvis and Kings. And the world's heaviest pumpkin ever.
You can even try pumpkin fries, hash browns, Burgers… everything. And if you still don't have enough of pumpkins, you can choose of many different kinds to take them home with you. Which we did. Of course. How could one resist? We also tried this really delicious pumpkin lemonade.
If you are in the area: go there and enjoy. Great with kids by the way. Playgrounds. Fairy Tales Garden with slides and boats.
