Fall & Winter Events 2020

Glühwein & Hot Apple Cider

Friday, October 30th at 4pm

Reservations are highly recommended and can be made via our yelp page.

No event ticket purchase necessary. 

Some people say that winter only begins when you smell Glühwein

being warmed over the stove at Ludwig's  ;)

As of October 30th, we will be launching our winter menu with delicious soups and stews to keep you warm over the colder months. In addition to food specials we also start to serve our home made Glühwein, which of course will be available to take home in the bottle, ready for you to just warm up. 

So make a night of it and stop by to grab a warm drink and a bite to eat.

Halloween Night 

Saturday, October 31st  from 4 - 10pm

Reservations are highly recommended, and can be made via our yelp page. No event ticket purchase necessary. 

The spookiest night of the year and we will be celebrating with food and drink specials for both

 adults, children & of course the dogs!

Ludwig's yearly dog costume competition will be taking place throughout the evening and we have decided to include the children this year! So feel free to come by any time through the night and we will just snap a picture of your costume with the best ones being posted on our social media for the public to decide the winner.

Last year we had a pug dressed as a UPS delivery driver as our winner, so get creative!

Trick-or-treating may be cancelled around town but in a safe and fun way you can still come down to Ludwig's and any child dressed up will receive a little Ludwig's goodie bag.
