Ludwigsburg, Germany

Next is a German from a fairy tale, where princes and princesses live and spend all day long playing in the garden :)

The Ludwigsburg ensemble consisting of the residential palace, palace gardens and the pleasure palaces Favorite and Monrepos is one of the most outstanding artistic achievements of the 18th century and one of Europe's most impressive and extensive Baroque complexes which served as a residence for the Dukes and Kings of Württemberg.
The foundation stone was laid on May 17, 1704 under the Duke Eberhard Ludwig of Württemberg (reigning monarch from 1693 to 1733), hence the name Ludwigsburg (or Ludwig's castle)

aaand...again, common stamps with not such a common one :)
the uncommon one was issued this year and comes from a set of 2 landscape stamps.
