Learning in Ludwigsburg is rooted in discourse and dialogue. This approach benefits students, researchers and consultants alike.

We address topics from a broad range of sectors in an interdisciplinary manner: from theatre, museums, art, literature and music to the creative industry, cultural tourism and public administration.

We integrate the economic and administrative disciplines with cultural studies and the humanities in an evidence-based, collaborative approach.
