Castles of Augustusburg and Falkenlust at Brühl

The Augustusburg and Falkenlust palaces in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany have been listed as a UNESCO cultural World Heritage Site since 1984. They are connected by the spacious gardens and trees of the Schlosspark.

The palaces were built at the beginning of the 18th century by the Archbishop-Elector of Cologne, Clemens August of Bavaria (1700-1761) of the Wittelsbach family. The architects were Johann Conrad Schlaun and François de Cuvilliés. The magnificent staircase in Augustusburg Palace was designed by Johann Balthasar Neumann.
