1. Aldinger Torhaus
The original at least eight gatehouses of the baroque city of Ludwigsburg were part of the former city fortifications. This consisted of an approximately 6 km long and up to 3.5 m high wall, which was provided with gates at its entrances and exits. Each gate system had a gatehouse connected to the city wall, which served as a guardhouse and customs house. However, the aim was not so much to guard the city from external enemies, but rather to prevent the soldiers, some of whom were forcibly recruited and barracked in the city, from deserting. Six of these gatehouses are still preserved; these are listed buildings.
The Evangelical Church of the Resurrection in Ludwigsburg was built in 1934 as a provisional wooden church and was initially another preaching site of the Stadtkirche Ludwigsburg. The church of the same name in the Evangelical Deanery of Ludwigsburg is a church building of the Evangelical Church in Württemberg. Due to the influx of refugees, it had to be expanded in 1952 and thus received its present form.
