Built on the ruins of a medieval moated castle, Schloss Augustusburg was commissioned by Archbishop-Elector of Cologne, Clemens August of Bavaria, in the early 18th century. With its interplay of ornate architecture, sculptures, and painting, it is a masterpiece of German Rococo. Enjoy a tour of the opulent palace to see the imposing staircase and charming frescoes and decoration. Though tours are mostly offered in German, an English audio guide can be purchased. Later, relax in the palace gardens, which are shared with Falkenlust Palace and were named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984 collectively with the two palaces.

Per chi visita i dintorni di Colonia, assolutamente da non perdere. Ben tenuta e con un tour ben organizzato (con audioguida in italiano).

Well maintained and with a well-organized tour (with audio guide in Italian). Apart from the absolutely unique representation staircase, what impressed me was seeing a room covered in almost all of the original painted leather, something never seen anywhere else. Remarkable!
Amazing palace. It's a shame the tour is only in German, although you can use the audio guide, but it looks like the tour guide gives much more information. Beautiful gardens as well.
Gorgeous former palaces of Klement August(sp). No pictures are allowed so unfortunately no physical memories to take home, but an amazing experience anyway. Guides speak English and are happy to answer questions. Be sure to see the falcon house on your visit.
