As Its the same place as Schloss Augustusburg and trip advisor doesn't join them, I give them in both a terrible. Access from Colonge, easy and cheap by train, a short and impressive garden walk and you are in. Staff lacks name badges or uniforms,...More

Schloss Bruehl / Schloss Bruhl / Scloss Augustusburg / Bruhl Palace is one and the same place. You may want to search reviews for the different names it goes.
