The schloss is stunning as you approach it. The gardens are beautiful. And most impressive is the entrance hall - you can't help but drop your jaw. It is the most beautiful entrance hall I've ever seen. Worth the trip. The grounds are a great walk. The drive is no sweat if you are between Bonn and Koln...or on the... More

The "Augustusburg" is a place you have to see. The building is very nice and interesting. The garden is wunderful.

It was a beautiful morning and an interesting tour, but not one of the best rococo palaces I've ever seen. If you travel a lot, and have seen other rococo palaces, you may very well be disappointed. We also got there too late to see the hunting lodge, which closes at 4pm. Don't waste your time walking down there if... More

It is a proper jewel itself: marble walls, golden decorations, Chinese 'wallpaper' and an amazing garden. Definitely worth it!

We took a tour of Schloss Augustusburg, described as . . . a second home. Splendor and splendid are words that is easily used to describe much of what is to be seen. From the gardens to the interior, the palace is magnificent. We had an extremely warm and friendly English speaking guide. But, as noted by others, you may... More

Decided to visit this palace as a Sunday excursion and had a wonderful day. It was not crowded at all and the staff was very helpful. The audio guides were available for free and entrance was not expensive (even on a student budget). The gardens which are free to visit were beautiful with plenty of shade and a large forested...

This glorious building is fantastic. Apparently when the Federal capital was in Bonn uptil 96, the German President used this Schloss for official state banquets and similar grand affairs. Somehow it survived the worst of ww2 and remained relatively intact. It has a set of stairs which are set in such splendour I have never seen equalled anywhere in the... More

Insides of the palace are very impressive, mainly the staircase is just beatiful and majestic, borrow an audio guide (for free) as there is zero english information in the castle. Nearby garden is very nice to stroll at (we even saw 2 wedding photoshoots there). One advice buy the combined ticket to the Falkenlust, it is a little of the... More

Went today, although tour guide was in German, we had audio guide in English. If you come to Cologne or Bonn, dont miss this. We really enjoyed it.
