Dear foreign guests,
Dear English-speaking friends,
we’ve noticed the great demand for exclusive guided tours in English. That is why we’ve decided to establish a tour which will solely be given in English every Sunday from now on. Enjoy the tour with your family, friends and guests and discover the unique architecture, the fabulous decoration and paintings of Benrath Palace.
Did you know that it was built as the summer residence and hunting lodge of Carl Theodor, Elector Palatine, and his wife, Elisabeth Auguste? The construction was completed in 1770 – an accomplished work of art that unites architecture and nature in one overall concept. Today, the palace is rated as one of the most beautiful and best preserved palaces of its epoch.
Enjoy the outstanding vestibule and overwhelming beauty of the main hall, where the Elector and his guests used to dance and celebrate. Find out more about the physical culture, the astonishing rituals of the time and plunge into the courtly life of the 18th century.
