Ludwig of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (20 October 1696, in Langenburg – 16 January 1765, in Langenburg) was a Count of Hohenlohe-Langenburg. On 7 January 1764, he was elevated to Imperial Prince by Emperor Francis I.
He was a son of Count Albert Wolfgang of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Countess Sophia Amalia of Nassau-Saarbrücken.
During Ludwig's reign some modifications to Langenburg Castle were made: the east wing was provided with its present form and further modifications in the Baroque style took place.
