Special musical experiences
at Benrath Palace
In various concert series we invite you to get to know the palace from its musical side. From classical to pop and jazz to acoustic sounds, the Musikjahr offers the right concert for everyone.
The Music Year at Benrath Palace is sponsored by the Foundation for Art, Culture and Social Affairs of Sparda-Bank West, which has been active in North Rhine-Westphalia since 2004. Since its foundation, it has supported a total of more than 530 charitable projects with almost 19 million euros. The aim is always to promote the common good and to make a long-term commitment to local people in the three areas of art, culture and social affairs. As part of its cultural sponsorship, the foundation supports projects that offer community experiences and give expression to values and social aspirations. It supports, among other things, the musical education work of public music schools in North Rhine-Westphalia, young jazz talents and also the Music Year at Benrath Palace, where visitors can experience a variety of musical formats in the special atmosphere of a castle.

During the popular Wandelkonzerte, you have the opportunity to experience early music of the 17th and 18th centuries in the breathtaking setting of the Corps de Logis. After dreaming yourself back to bygone times with the atmospheric and historic sounds of the Neue Düsseldorfer Hofmusik, you can then let your impressions take effect during the pleasure stroll through the palace.
