A UNESCO World Heritage site worth the visit if you are in Cologne or Bonn. The tour itself takes a little longer than an hour so you can get it done in less than half a day. While the outside is beautiful, the inside is magnificent- look for pictures online. The tours are only offered in German, every hour till... More

If you intend to visit Bonn - the ex German Democratic Republic capital, the Augustusburg Palace listed as a world cultural heritage at UNESCO is worth a detour. I did not go inside so I missed the magnificent staircase and a lot more but the outside and the garden/tree park alone were worth it anyway as well as the charming... More

My wife and I toured the house this past July. It was a great museum! We were able to listen to an English language narrator that told us all about the great rooms , paintings, architecture and history of the inhabitants. It was a shame that we could not take pictures inside but due to the age of the structure... More

From Cologne, the local train line to Brühl Station takes about 15 minutes. Can't remeber if we had a "senior" fare but the cost was Euros 7.35 each. On arrival Brühl Station, you can see Augustusburg Palace from the platform. The Augustusburg and Falkenlust Palaces are listed as a UNESCO World Heitage site. When visiting Augustusburg Palace, bags must be... More

This was very convenient to get to. Train station is right in front of the castle. Pay for a day ticket for Bonn and you get the two castles for half price and the max Augustine museum for free. Enjoyed the gardens and the walk to the hunting castle. Again it would have been nice to take my time on... More

The Schloss is very pretty and the gardens are wonderful. The 2.6 Km walk to Falkenlust is worth it. Don't miss visiting the center of Bruhl. Many little shops and places to grab a bite.

The resemblence to Château de Versailles is remarkable. The interior is amazing; however, if you don't speak German, you miss out on lots of information. The tours are in German and you are given an english audio device that it is brief in detail. Buy both tickes to Augustusburgh and Falkenlust and you'll save money. Take the 1.5 mile stroll... More

Beautiful and historically important. Sort of a drag that you must be on a tour and can't wander as you can in some other palaces around Europe. But totally worth it anyway!

If you take the train, go to the Bruhl train station, NOT Bruhl-Mitte. You literally cross the street to the schloss from the Bruhl Hauptbahnhof. Pictures are not allowed inside and you must wait (maybe 10 minutes) to go on a guided tour. The tour is in German, so it was well worth paying for the audio guide in English... More
