Description

Located in the village of Benrath, a suburb of Dusseldorf since 1929, Schloss Benrath, was erected in 1756-73, in the middle of a spacious park bordered by the Rhine, by electoral Prince Carl Theodor von Pfalz-Sulzbach. Designed by Nicolas de Pigage, the residence is a fine example of the transition from late baroque to classical architecture. The main building contains some exquisite furniture and 18th century paintings, while the west wing is home to the Benrath Natural History Museum. Guided tours and open times differ for different areas within the premises, please visit the website for more information.
