I liked Benrath very much. It is such a relaxing place in Düsseldorf where you can go and just take a long walk in the yard. The palace is homble but beautiful and the sorrounding is green, nature alike and well maintained. The swans in...More

This building does not even seem like a castle. But yes, do visit it , not for castle but for the man made pond made behind it. You can really spend time around there clicking photos.

The castle is very beautiful, but the exterior looks a bit shabby. We could not get the indoor tour, because it was closed. Beautiful park, lake in front of the castle and surroundings.

Tour guide very informative and interesting. Difficult to wear the special slippers to protect the floors and not walk like a duck!

The palace building complex is rather small in reality compared to most pictures you'll find on the internet, but the architecture is worth having a look. Great place for photography and strolling around with its extensive park and small lakes. Entry into the palace, which...More
