Ludwigshafen (Rhein) is a city in Rhineland-Palatinate.
Ludwigshafen is a big city on the west side of the Rhine (population: approx. 165.500) in the east of Rhineland-Palatinate, and across the river from Mannheim, in Baden-Württemberg. Ludwigshafen is famous for its chemical industry, especially the BASF. There are many boroughs, for example Mundenheim, Maudach or Oggersheim. Ludwigshafen lies to the south of Worms and to the east of Kaiserslautern. It is near the Palatinate Forest.
Ludwigshafen does not have an airport. If you get in by train, you will have to change to a local train or a suburban train in Mannheim, because intercity trains don’t stop at Luwigshafen. Mannheim, however, is a very important train station, so you won’t have any problems to get into Ludwigshafen. If you want to travel by taxi, you can get one at Ludwigshafen main station, if you prefer to travel by tram or bus, go to “Ludwigshafen Mitte” with suburban train (RE) S1 or S3 or take a tram right in front of Mannheim’s central station.
There are a lot of different possibilities to get around in Ludwigshafen. There are several tram lines which connect Mannheim and Ludwigshafen and its city districts from morning til night. The centre for most means of transportation is the “Berliner Platz.” There are tram lines, busses and the train station “Ludwigshafen Mitte.” You can also find taxis there. If you get in by regional train, you might prefer to get out at Ludwigshafen Mitte, because the main station is not so well connected to the bus lines. But you will always get a taxi there.
