Seeschloss Monrepos

Ludwigsburg, Germany

Monrepos is a lakeside palace in Ludwigsburg, Germany. Although quite far from and almost separate from Favorite Palace and Ludwigsburg Palace, by way of pedestrian paths it is connected to the rest of the grounds. It is one of the two minor palaces on the estate, along with the main one. The smaller ones were used as Hunting lodges. Of all three, this is the only one that is still owned by the royal family of Württemberg after their overthrow in 1918. Much of the land surrounding Monrepos and on the Royal part of the estate in general is now used as a golf course, unlike the State owned part, which is made up of parks and museums.

Since the 16th century, the dukes of Württemberg enjoyed hunting along the Eglosheimer Lake. In 1714, Duke Eberhard Ludwig had an octagonal pavilion, the 'Little Lake House', constructed on the northern shore.

Peaceful & Beautiful place ♥️

Excellent place to spend a relaxed Sunday ☀️! There’s good arrangement for parking. We mainly went there for paddle boating, but you can go for a walk, enjoy some coffee, or even have a picnic (if the weather permits). It’s really secluded from the city congestion, but also not very far away.

A good place for having a casual walk or a picnic. But the walking path wasn't the best. There were a lot of water puddles. There's a risk of slipping at some spots. Maybe it gets better when the sun is shining. They also offer boating in the lake at a fee. There's a direct bus from Ludwigsburg ZOB to this place which makes it accessible also by public transport. A car parking space is also available.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
