A lacery palace in the southern outskirts of Duesseldorf is one the main city attractions. The palace was built at the endo of 18th c. at the commission of the Pfaltz Elector, Karl-Theodor. The architectural design was mastered by Nicholas de Pigage who created a Rococo-style palace with two флигелями. The main building was occupied by the Elector's family, the боковых флигелях — by his court and servants. According to the then fashion, the palace was surrounded by a park which was recently restored to its 18th c. splendour.
Nowadays Benrath palace belongs to the State and houses two museums: a museum of natural history and a museum of European park design art. Additionally, there are regular guided tours for those who want to learn more about day-to-day life of the Elector and his heirs.
