4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web
You'll feel like you've entered a forest in the middle of the city at Schloss und Park Benrath, a UNESCO-recognized Baroque pleasure palace that dates back to 1755. Architect Nicolas de Pigage built it for Elector Palatine Carl Theodor. The main building's museum offers guided tours. The surrounding gardens integrate well with the palace, creating a singular work of art. The city's tramway will take you here easily. A visit to Schloss und Park Benrath represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dusseldorf itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • They want you to pay to look, but demand no photos. What exactly are they trying to protect? It's been photographed a million times (just search Google). The guide went so far as to point out the blac...  read more »

  • nice place to do a sunny day picnic but bit further out.
  • Cute villa. Big park around.
  • A very poor experience for the international traveller. You can only go around the main house as part of an official tour which was only available in german. An english 1 side A4 information sheet was available of very very poor quality. It was badly photocopied and gave virtually no information about what was of interest in the rooms. No english audio available (which is a very easy thing to provide and available in most european cities for their major tourist highlights). If Dusseldorf expects to attract the international weekend tourists it must do a lot better. The palace is beautiful - pity the tour was so poor.
  • Great place to go on picnic in summer
  • This place is said to be the most interesting place in Dusseldorf. I only have one day so I decided to go to it. It's very interesting and very beautiful. Please note that the tour language is only in German.
