Show sight on map

The Ludwigskirche in Neuburg, a district of Freiburg im Breisgau, is the place of worship of the Protestant Ludwigsgemeinde. The church, located in Starkenstraße, is directly adjacent to the Old Cemetery and is named after Grand Duke Ludwig I, who had the old Ludwigskirche built, which was destroyed by bombs in 1944 and was located on today's Habsburgerstraße and Rheinstraße. The district of Neuburg is often mistakenly assigned to Herdern, as the term Neuburg is not very well anchored in the population.
