Reviewed 23 July 2017

The venue is located in the city centre of Bruehl. Parking is possible, free on Sunday, on the Belvedere Parking. Actually there are two palaces; the Augustusburg and Falkenlust palace. The Augustusburg palace is the bigger one. The Falkenlust palace is the “hunting lodge” (mainly used for falconry in the old times.) of the main palace and can be reached by foot from the main palace garden. The palaces were built at the beginning of the 18th century by the Archbishop-Elector of Cologne, Clemens August of Bavaria of the Wittelsbach family. The Augustugsburg palace is based on an old fort which was built in the 12th century. The construction were started in 1725. Falkenlust was started to be built in 1729. The inside of the palaces can only be visited by guided tour which I can recommend. The interior is beautiful and worth a visit, like the palace garden.

Visited as part of an Amsterdam to Budapest river cruise. Magnificent buildings and gardens. Walking was easy and it did not take long to see all of it. Best seen as a guided tour as it has a lot of history. A must see attraction.

The lack of original furniture is bothering and the staircase is in gake marble but after all it is very much worth a visit!

What a beautiful baroque castle! So very extravagant! We took a tour in English and it lasted around 1 hour. You can't take photos inside so I took photos of the postal cards I bought to post them here. I though it was really worth the visit. The gardens in November were not very interesting so I will have to return in the summer! The parking is large and plentiful and the little town of Brühl is very pretty. Well worth a stop.

The inner design is beautiful specifically the staircase section. Don't get fooled be the exterior. BUT! there is no English tour ( you must go with a tour) there is a very much useless audio guide with dismal information and you have to stand in group and listen to someone talking in language you can't decipher. A bit of a torture. The staff are not friendly and rude sometimes.
