Living in Ludwigsburg

Ludwigsburg University of Education Campus

Ludwigsburg University of Education has been in existence since 1966. It is a modern centre of excellence for educational sciences in four closely interrelated areas: school-based education, out-of-school education for children and young people, adult and continuing education, and education in the cultural and social spheres.

A major focus of the university profile is the Bachelor and Master degree programmes for the teaching professions of primary school, lower secondary school, bi-lingual secondary school and special needs education (B.A. / M.Ed.). For vocational education, LUE offers a Master of Science.

Since January 2016, a cooperative "Professional School of Education" has been established together with the Stuttgart universities and colleges. Here, the partners cooperate primarily on Master degree programmes in teacher training. The special feature of three other Bachelor degree programmes is the linking of educational science and subject didactic approaches to non-school educational fields (Early Childhood Education, Educational Science, Cultural and Media Education).

In addition, students can specialise in six further Master degree programmes for specific professional and research areas or qualify for leadership positions in the field of education in two part-time continuing education Master degree programmes, including an international degree programme. LUE is also involved in continuing education through certified studies.


Ludwigsburg University of Education is also proud of its diverse campus life. Cultural highlights are firmly integrated into the university's calendar of events.

There is also a students’ art gallery with changing exhibitions and the Literature Café, which offers readings, concerts and poetry slams. The nearby Favorite Park invites you to stroll and relax.

Living in Ludwigsburg

The baroque city of Ludwigsburg with its approximately 95,000 inhabitants offers not only magnificent castles but also lively shopping streets, cinemas and a colourful pub scene.

Ludwigsburg is located in the heart of Baden-Württemberg, about 12 km north of Stuttgart city centre so if you would also like to take advantage of what the nearby state capital has to offer, you can reach Stuttgart city centre in just a few minutes by “S-Bahn” (local train service).

Around Ludwigsburg are not only the large cities of Heilbronn and Stuttgart, but also medieval half-timbered towns such as Bietigheim-Bissingen, Besigheim or Marbach. The Bottwartal valley, the Swabian-Franconian Forest Nature Park, the Celtic Museum in Hochdorf and the Tripsdrill Adventure Park are just a few of the places that make the Ludwigsburg area so special and definitely worth a visit.

Ludwigsburg city centre is best explored on foot or by bicycle due to its compact size. In addition, the city has a well-developed bus network within the VVS (local transport service) and an inner-city parking guidance system that shows you free parking spaces in real time.
