Benrath Palace

Even from the outside, Benrath Palace is an impressive ensemble of "Corps de Logis" - the main building, the neighbouring buildings (two cavalier wings and two gatehouses) as well as the Orangerie and the extensive Schlosspark. There is so much to discover here that you should easily take several hours to visit. Be sure to plan a tour of the Palace and book online or by phone in advance. This is also possible in English. The main building can only be entered with a guided tour - that is perhaps one of the reasons why it is still so well preserved. On slippers you walk through impressively decorated, high-ceilinged rooms. Everywhere in the decor are pictures of courtly hunting, rural festivals, pleasures of nature, the promotion and enjoyment of art, literature and science. Elector Carl Theodor von Pfalz-Sulzbach gave the orde to built Palace of pleasure and hunting in 1755 and it was completed 18 years later. The buildings survived two World Wars and are one of the highlights for visitors to Duesseldorf. All information and contacts to the palace tours are available at: https: // ...
