Tips

    From here you have the best view of the castle, which was the hunting lodge of Duke Eberhard Ludwig von Württemberg. You can go rowing or pedal boats on the lake in front of the castle. The boat rental is open daily from mid-March to mid-October. The prices for renting a boat start from seven euros. If it is cold enough, the lake is converted into an ice rink in winter.

    The Dukes of Württemberg have enjoyed hunting at Lake Eglosheim since the 16th century. In 1714, Duke Eberhard Ludwig had an octagonal pavilion, the little lake house, built on the north bank.
    Monrepos (French for "my rest", "my relaxation") is connected by avenues to the Ludwigsburg residential palace and the Favorite pleasure palace.

    Monrepos (French for "my rest", "my rest") is a lake castle in the north-west of Ludwigsburg. The small palace is connected to the Ludwigsburg Residential Palace and the Favorite Summer Palace by avenues.
    Under Duke Carl Eugen, the entire site was designed in baroque forms. Since 1755 a rectangular lake with straight banks was created. A few years later, the duke commissioned his architect Philippe de La Guêpière to plan a baroque summer palace. Construction work began in 1760 but came to a halt after four years. Meanwhile, Duke Carl Eugen was more interested in his other palace construction projects. The half-finished system fell into a deep slumber.
    Only Duke Friedrich I (elector since 1803, king since 1806) was interested again in the half-ruined castle. Master builder Nikolaus Friedrich von Thouret planned a redesign in the classical style and had the Seegarten redesigned in the English landscape style. The rectangular shape was abandoned, artificial islands were created in the lake and various buildings were erected on them. So the Hohenheim chapel was moved to one of the islands, while a cupid temple stood on the other. At the same time, the palace was built according to Thouret's plans in 1804. A dairy farm, i.e. an agricultural property, and a large animal park belonged to the Seeschloss. By order of the elector, the sea castle was given the name Monrepos in 1804. Friedrich had to sell his country estate at Monrepos near Wyborg to Ludwig Heinrich von Nicolay in 1788 for political reasons. Often the king would come to Monrepos with a small retinue to retreat and hunt.
