My last day in Germany. Between rain showers we took a walk through Favoritepark. This park is part of the Ludwigsburg Palace grounds and was created to hold deer and similar game in the 1700's for the enjoyment of the ruler of Wuerttemberg.

In the 20th century the park grounds and the small summer palace fell into disuse and were renovated only in the 1980's. Now it's a popular easy stroll in the middle of the city.

The Forsthaus
It's a nice Sunday afternoon, there were quite a few people on the small road leading through the park, but I managed to artfully hide them in the shot below.

When we got to the other side, we decided to turn around instead of walking all the way down to Monrepos Palace.

The summer palace is really pretty, but completely covered in scaffolding at the moment, so here's a snapshot towards Ludwigsburg Palace instead.
