For a short time Ludwiglust was the capital of Mecklenburg, before it reverted back to Schwerin. Ludwig II, the son of the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin, lived in Ludwigslust and loved it so much he named it after the joy he got from being there.

Later, a rather large (and quite decadent) castle was built there. The grounds and gardens are fabulous and have been pretty much left to their natural state.

The statue of the woman riding a horse in the main avenue leading to the castle is of Princess Alexandrine of Prussia.
