Pink palace

A Very beautiful summer palace. Worth visiting. It is also accessible to public transport which is a bonus. The palace is huge, but the gardens are great. Free entrance.

The Palace is beautiful but you are unable to view it except on a guided tour. Amazing history and beautiful gardens (which are free). You can view two exhibitions but if you do not read German they they are very boring. I recommend you take the guided tour of the actual palace (the exhibitions are in the servants quarters). Its...

There is a direct U-bahn from Dusseldorf central station that leaves you at the doorstep of the grand palatial building. Unfortunately, the day we visited,on Sunday, it was closed. But the grand and magnificent garden at the back of the palatial building did not leave us disappointed. Ducks in the pond in front of Schloss Benrath will surely lighten your... More

I had first seen this Palace fifty years ago while staying with a German family in a town nearby but wasn't able to visit it. It certainly looked very pretty, a delicate building all painted in a salmon pink. Therefore, while touring northern Germany, we decided we would visit it. There were only disabled parking places at the grounds and... More

The perfect place to spend the day, just a short distance from the city. It's well served by the tram and also by the S-bahn at nearby Benrath. A relaxing oasis and a great place for stroll.

A nice palace and park where you can spend your time strolling, jogging and enjoying the nature garden. Schloss Benrath was built as a pleasure and hunting palace for the Elector Carl Theodor. It has an area of 60 hectares with artistic unity of buildings, interior, museum and gardens. You can easily see duck, swans, etc swimming and feeding on... More

From Düsseldorf main train station, it takes just 3 min of fast/speed train to reach Düsseldorf Benrath Station. You may then take U71 tram or walk to Schloss Benrath. There is a huge lake in front of it with swan family, ducks, etc swimming serenely. Then behind the palace are surrounded with huge eye soothing gardens.
