A baroque stately residence large enough to impress, small enough not to overwhelm. Extensive garden and parkland. Very pleasant walk to the lovely little hunting lodge, Falkenlust.

We visited Augustusburg late in the afternoon when the sun was low, so we got to see the schloss glowing in the twilight. It looked amazing and highlighted the architectural features of the building/s. The gardens are impressive, although all the water features in the main garden had been emptied for the winter. We particularly like the formal garden with... More

This palace was the destination of our Sunday trip and it was great choice. The palace isn't really big but it's charming. The stuff is professional and it's possible to rent audio guide with around 10 different langues. The sightseeing takes around 1 h and as a student, it costs 5 euro (with audio guide). Strongly recommended

If you have the time to go to Bruhl, I would definitely go for a visit. Seeing this was defiantly one of the highlights of my trip to Bonn and Cologne. To see the castle, you need to be escorted around as part of a tour and the tour is only in German. Fortunately they have an audio guide in... More

Its half a kilometre walk fron Bruhl Mitte tram station. The walk through typicall German Countryside village atmosphere with sunday street market was very enjoyable. You cannot get a better feel of local culture. This was advantage of taking tram. Had we come via road, we would have missed the street market. The tourist information centre was extremly helpful and... More

The palace itself is really quite impressive. The grounds are also beautiful. It is like a smaller more manageable version of Versailles. Definitely worth visiting if in the Bonn/Cologne area. However, the English language tour is not well coordinated. The recordings are often much longer and/ore shorter than the German descriptions and guide (who was rather surly about having non-German... More

Wet morning in Cologne brightened up by lunchtime. Used the Koln Welcome card to take the S-bahn to Bruhl Mitte followed by a 600 metre walk to the Schloss. Boy - was it worth it. Beautiful location with extensive gardens leading to Falkenlust hunting lodge. Take a tip - do what the locals do on a Sunday - go for... More
