Ludwig's Rose Farm

Ludwig’s Roses was established in March 1971. From small beginnings, the nursery has become world-renowned, as the premier rose nursery in South Africa. Ludwig's Roses grow the largest selection of rose varieties available anywhere in the world- and its a sight to see! A million rose bushes in full bloom appear like an ocean of colour with an overwhelming fragrance. There's a lot going on at Ludwig's. Apart from hosting myriad events and workshops, there is a lovely restaurant where visitors can sit back and relax. Children will love a trip to Ludwig's Rose Farm too- there's a play area and if you're there on a weekend you can get a tractor ride around the farm. There's also a florist if you'd like to take cut flowers home with you and if you're searching for a venue to host your next event- they have that covered too!
