40 years UNESCO World Heritage Site
Augustusburg and Falkenlust palaces in Brühl

Brühl Palaces are celebrating their 40th anniversary as a UNESCO World Heritage Site this year. Today, the World Heritage Site is one of 1199 sites worldwide, one of 52 sites in Germany and one of 6 sites in North Rhine-Westphalia, making it one of the most important things that mankind has created. The Brühl World Heritage Site comprises three extraordinary treasures: the imposing Augustusburg Palace, the intimate Falkenlust Palace and the typical French-style palace garden.

Fancy travelling back in time to the rococo era? Then visit the Brühl palaces – every day except Mondays.

Save the date: On Sunday, 2 June, from 10 am to 7 pm, Brühl Palaces invite you to celebrate 40 years of UNESCO world heritage. Admission is free. Registration is not required.

We are looking forward to see you!

Please note: On Saturday/Sunday, June 1-2, 2024, wedding photography is not possible on the entire site of Brühl Palaces due to the anniversary event. Thank you for your understanding.
