Ludwigshöhe Villa

Edenkoben (Kreis Südliche Weinstrasse)

Strangely alien with its sever architectural forms, and yet harmoniously linked with the landscape, Ludwigshöhe Villa is situated on a slope below the medieval Rietburg Castle.

King Ludwig I of Bavaria had this country mansion erected from 1846 to 1851 in Classicist forms to the plans of his court architect, Friedrich von Gärtner.

The valley frontage of the four-winged structure, with its double-storied portico and broad flight of steps leading up to the entrance, recalls Roman villas in Italy. The living rooms have a cool elegance with their walls painted in the style of Pompeian frescoes. The richly carved Empire furniture, made mainly in Munich, fits in well with this. The upper story houses a collection of works by the painter Max Slevogt.
