Palace and Park Benrath
One of the most beautiful garden palaces of the 18th century is situated in Düsseldorf's southern district of Benrath. Planned and built between 1756 and 1773 by Nicolas de Pigage, the Palace and Park Benrath was constructed as a maison de plaisance for Elector Carl Theodor.
The palace is an overall work of art dating from the late baroque period that combines art, landscaping and nature. It is also home to three museums: the Museum Corps de Logis (located in the palace's main building), the Museum für Europäische Gartenkunst (Museum for Landscape Art) and the Museum für Naturkunde (Natural Science Museum). This is where visitors may immerse themselves in the 18th century, follow in the footsteps of important landscape artists and take a stroll through local flora and fauna. Blossoming gardens, curving paths and hidden ponds invite visitors to spend time and relax at Palace and Park Benrath.
