Four Ways to Enjoy Autumn in the Stuttgart Region


Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival!

The Ludwigsburg Pumpkin Festival has been a tradition in our family for the last four years, even before we had our son. The festival takes place beneath the palace and displays some spectacular sculptures and creations using almost every type of gourd imaginable. The theme is different every year, but one thing that remains the same is the amazing food, atmosphere, and pumpkin market with various types of gourds for sale, recipes, and seasonings to bring home. There is also a market hall to buy souvenirs, the Ludwigsburg fairy tale gardens for kids to explore, a boat ride, playground, and biergarten. Events are scheduled throughout the festival dates, so check the website for details on what’s happening when.

  1. This short list was enough to make me wish I was in Germany for fall. We have Oktoberfest events in the states but nothing comes close to the real deal. Those Pumpkin Festival looks fun too!
