Based in Cologne, we went to Dusseldorf for a day trip. On the way back, we thought there is an English tour at 3pm. But it was cancelled due in part to the Pandemic. The ticket office is situated very far from the entrance, which is a Cafe! We rushed and pant like hell only to be told that there is no English tour. To see the most palatial rooms in the main building A, you must pay 14 euros, ouch! To make you feel slightly better, a small natural history museum & a Garden art museum in buildings B and C are also included in your ticket.

Been to countless Castles & Palaces, the few rooms offered here are nice but not over the top. Certainly not worth the 14 euros they charge. Next day, we went to the Burhl Palace which is awe inspiring and we were dumb strucked! Price is only 9 euros (if a Hunting Lodge is included, then 14 euros). Do not miss the Burhl Palace if you are near Bonn or Cologne!

The Schloss grounds are lovely for a picnic or a family outing. The Christmas markets at Schloss Benrath are also wonderful - if you can find it, I recommend the Sake Glühwein!

This is a really nice place to visit for a day trip. It was built by Karl Theodore. You can take a tour of the castle and visit two museums on site. One about wildlife in the area and the other about gardens.

This has been my old school, so I am slightly biased..but when I visited it again, after over 40 years, none of the charm has been lost. The Schloss itself charges an entry fee, but the gardens can be visited for free and are probably just as important as the inside of the building itself. If you are looking to get a feel for the real Germany, you really kust visit the palace..and Benrath.

A lovely palace and house BUT you need to get on the appropriate tour (German or English) to see it. The tour guides are excellent and show to you every aspect of this Italian style palace - very nicely decorated.
In the other two sections - separate buildings of the palace - one had a review of how agriculture and science affected palace life BUT I wish the explanations were also in English and not just in German. They seem to forget in Düsseldorf that half their tourists are non-German. The other building houses exhibitions of art.

Took my family on an English speaking tour and had a horrible experience. Staff was rude to us and even touched my children ! This despite marketing the tour as suitable for children from age 0. Looked like they prefer to have DOGS there instead of kids, horrible, made us feel bad, told us off as if we where criminals for my kid lightly touching a window sill!!!

The inside of the palace is stunningly gorgeous! The details are intricate and so beautiful! I loved the marble floors, the plaster reliefs and the embroidered wallpaper! Swoon-worthy! But my favorite part was our visit to the gardens! We were there in mid-August and there were still hundreds and hundreds of blooms. Lovely tour!

Pretty pink Schloss and lovely gardens, close to the Rhein. Well worth a visit. Ornamental layout as well as tree lined avenues. Ponds swans etc.

The inside of this “castle” is quite lovely. The furniture and wall hangings are very impressive. We did the short tour and the guide did a wonderful job of changing between German and English. She was quite knowledgeable and answered questions very well. The cafe and shop were also quite nice. They do require visitors to wear big felt slippers over their shoes which was somewhat entertaining but also could be a challenge for anyone unsteady on their feet. The grounds and the castle could take anywhere from an hour to several
hours depending on how much time you spend wandering the vast area surrounding the castle.

The palace and it's surrounding are beautiful. We got the combined tickets for the 2 museums and a shorter version ( 40 minutes) of the shorter version of the guided tour in English. The museum information are only in English so we were a little frustrated. The guided tour were really nice. It is also nice to explore the gardens which are for free.
