Ludwigslust Palace (Schloss) is located in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, northern Germany. It was built as a hunting lodge, rebuilt as a luxurious retreat from the ducal capital, Schwerin, then became for a time (1765–1837) the center of government. It was the "joy" of Prince Christian Ludwig, the son of the Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin. The second stamp dates from times when that part of Germany was still behind the curtain. The photo shows the Golden Hall in the center of the palace.

Ludwigsburg Residential Palace, close to Stuttgart, is one of the few Baroque buildings to have survived the tumultuous history of the last centuries almost unscathed. This truly palatial complex stands out not just for its impressive size, but also for its sumptuous interiors. Another feature is the unique blend of three quite different architectural styles: Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassicism. The stamp of 2004 commemorates 300 years since construction was begun.
