Schloss Benrath
Dusseldorf - Schloss Benrath
The Schloss Benrath palace and park was built by Frenchman Nicolas de Pigage in 1755 and form one of the Rhineland's most attractive ensembles. Built in late Baroque design for Elector Karl Theodor, the castle's rooms are decorated with inlaid parquet floors, wood-panelled walls and stucco ornaments in the style of Louis XVI. The west wing contains a natural history museum.
