PC #161: Ludwigslust, Germany

An interesting card from my friend, Friederike (d0npian0). These are old reprints of various places in Ludwigslust, “a small town with about 12000 inhabitants” but still has a small castle. My friend also wrote that tourist companies call the town the “Versailles of the North”. Quite impressive, as Versailles is well-known as an elegant city in France.

Ludwigslust is named after Prince Ludwig, it means “Ludwig’s joy”. It was enlarged and developed until the town became the capital of the district of Ludwigslust.


A UNESCO site, the Regensburg, for a stamp. Danke, Friederike!
