More than 200 years ago Benrath Palace was built on the Rhine, just south of Düsseldorf. It was a pleasure and hunting residence for Elector Carl Theodor. Nicolas de Pigage created one of the most beautiful garden residences of the 18th century. The complex is an artistic blend of buildings, interior decoration and extensive gardens. To this day it is considered a rare work of art of the late Rokoko period.

Due to the historic structure of the palace, the individual buildings are only partially accessible to disabled persons.
