Villa Ludwigshöhe

King Ludwig I (1786-1868) was so fond of Italy that had an Italian-styled villa erected as a summer residence in the Palatinate. Located at the highest point of the village of Edenkoben, on the German Wine Street, where the vineyards bordering the dense forest of the Palatinate look over the beautiful landscape of the Valley of the Rhine.

Since 1975, the Villa Ludwigshöhe has been in possession of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate, and the first floor houses a permanent exhibition of over 100 works of the painter and graphic artist, Max Slevogt (1868-1932). This artist is considered to be one of the most important representatives of German Impressionism.
