School classes / groups

The Benrath Palace and Park Foundation has a lot to offer for groups of any age and size, be it in the context of our permanent collection and special exhibitions or individual tours.

We provide workshops, tours and resources for daycare centres, toddlers, pupils, youth, adults and senior citizens. Especially for school classes we offer curriculum-linked topics, but also topics complementary to social studies and science such as zoology, botany and ecology as well as geography and history.

In addition to group tours you can also experience classes, workshops, readings or culinary highlights. Please note our schedule of regular tours and events in our calendar of events.
