The Augustusburg Palace in Bruhl was a wonderful way to spend the day. The tour was about just under 2 hours. The architecture, interior rococo designs, vast gardens and the lavish art work abound this wonderful sight. We took the group guided tour along with about 15 other guests. Our guide was average at best. She was polite, well spoken,... More

What a delight. Beautiful palace which you visit as an escorted group. The guide describes it in German, but you get a free audio guide in your own language so you can follow its history. And a very reasonable price. Beware that it closes between 12 and 1.30. The gardens are also magnificent (free and open throughout). An easy walk... More

This is a must see if you are in the area. It is a unesco world heritage site and deservedly so IMHO. Allow 4 hours to see it and the hunting lodge and gardens properly. There are guided tours in German and efficient and accurate audio guides in other languages . The interior of the Palace ( or Schloss or... More

A beautiful palace in the rococo style. Stunning to see. The entrance alone is amazing. We had a guided tour in English and it was very informative and interesting. The gardens are just as beautiful as the palace.

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
