It's a bit unfair to really compare, I know, but Palaces of wealthy muckety-mucks are difficult to... read more

The story and history about this UNESCO Site is interesting. It has the makings of a real scandalous time in history. The little chapel in the back is beautiful inside. The best way to see the chapel and take a picture is to hold your...More

Waste of time & money!! Just a piece of plastic coated paper of info on the small hunting lodge. Again no photos. Much better palaces throughout Bavaria & almost all of them let you take photos. I wonder how much they had to donate to...More

What a beautiful little gem of a house, and quite beautifully maintained. Mostly Rococo it gives a feel for the great party's that must have been held here in the 18th century after a day's hunting. Do get the audioguide, it's very valuable in detailing...More

Together with Augustusburg it forms a historical complex listed as a UNESCO World Heritage. Charming Rococo hunting lodge bears striking resemblance to the Amalienburg pavilion in the Nymphenburg park in Munich.

It's a bit unfair to really compare, I know, but Palaces of wealthy muckety-mucks are difficult to not stack rank in the mind’s eye. And while it does not reach the grandeur of Versailles or intimate Rococo style of Palace Sanssouci, Schlösser Brühl (Augustusburg /Falkenlust)...More

Falkenlust was very nice and we could follow the handouts given to us. We took our time but as there was little furniture etc it really was more about the tapestries, paintings, and wall furnishings. I can't understand why this rude man is still working...More

This was a very nice little castle. Pretty inside and out. Unfortunately just like Augustusburg, I could take no photos inside. We had English speaking guides provided by our Viking River Cruise and that was a very nice addition.
