Shopping with history

In the former cavalry barracks of William the Great in downtown Ludwigsburg, behind the 1857 façade, a 40,000-square-metres shopping centre has arisen with two levels for retail, restaurants and offices. blocher partners also integrated existing historical buildings along Körnerstraße into the complex.

Through the large glass dome over the first floor, daylight illuminates the shopping arcade to its farthest reaches. Open common spaces allow visual connections between the floors, which are linked by elevators and escalators.

The Wilhelmgalerie is located in the Ludwigsburg city centre, with a direct connection to the pedestrian zone. Public transportation stops there, and the train station is just a few minutes away. There are also 300 parking spaces available.
