Ludvig Knudsen was born in Copenhagen. He was the son of Jens Christian Knudsen (1801-1856) and Johanne F. Jakobsen (1811-1866).
He apprenticed as a carpenter and was then admitted to the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 1860 where he studied under Gustav Friedrich Hetsch. After his graduation in 1869, he worked for both Christian Hansen and Ferdinand Meldahl. In 1871 he assumed a position as Building Inspector in Copenhagen and remained in this position until 1889.
He designed a number of churches as well as various other sacral buildings, including St. Stephen's Church (Sankt Stefans Kirke) in Copenhagen's Nørrebro district. He was also responsible for the restoration of the Reformed Church and the Garrison Church in Copenhagen.
