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.
