Brühl Things to Do

  • Augustusburg Palace

    Starting out as the residence of the Arch-Bishop Elector of Cologne, the palace switched allegiance after the second world war and became a reception hall for guests of the state for the Federal Government of Germany in nearby Bonn. Today with the government removed to Berlin, the palaces are open to the public as a tourist destination. You can...

  • Cristuskirche

    Juxtaposed with the flashy grandeur of the Augustusburg Palace next door, the small, white, plain Protestant Cristuskirche puts the excesses of the Catholic Archibishop's residence in stark contrast. But plain doesn't mean that the church isn't beautiful.

  • Walking on the frozen lakes.

    Just out side of Bruhl is Phantasialand, a huge theme park that's well worth a visit in the summer, just opposite is some woodlands that hide a series of great lakes. The lakes were the result of quarrying done here decades ago and are now a nature reserve. In winter the lakes freeze over and you can walk over them, skate on them or pull your kids...

  • the Augustusburg

    As you are exiting the train station Bruhl you will immediately see in front of you the Bruhl Palace, Augustusburg. After all the station was originary built for the Palace. . .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...

  • Apres Ski Bar

    We went to Phantasia over the Christmas period and where garaunteed snow, which we did.So to go in a bar called Apres Ski was quite relevant. A lovely atmosphere nicely decked out with reindeer and trees. A good place for a warm and a hot wine, Fridays and Saturday open late untill 11.00pm

  • Winter wonderland

    If you can go over Christmas this is the best time in my opion. There is real snow on the ground, over 1000 christmas trees, many places to get gingerbread and mulled wine. Characters dressed as snowflakes, elves and there is even a father christmas that rides round the park in a little buggy, great for photos.

  • See A Show

    Whilst in the theme park there are a variety of free shows you can watch. We saw something like a circus act done on stage it was very very entertaining and suitable for all ages. With fabulous costumes and sound effects.

  • Ride the Black Mamba!

    Last year this ride was under construction so we couldnt go on it, but this year it was finished and was well worth the wait!! You are transported in to the depths of Africa with all the sounds of the wild. The carraiges sit 4 abreast with your feet hanging down, after being safely fastened in, the ride whips you to a dizzy height before dropping...

Approximately 18euro each adult for entry then the rest is...

Brühl Restaurants

  • Hotel, Bar & Restaurant.

    Perhaps it is the close proximity of Phantasialand, the theme park but for a small town Bruhl seems to have a lot of hotels, restaurants and bars, often it is all three together.After stopping here for a beer and enjoying the beer garden I perused the menu and decided to stay a little longer. The lights in the garden came on and the bats were...

  • Celebrations

    Whether an individual guest, group or Christmas celebration in the evening, feast at the buffett in the fantastic restaurant Alt Berlin. Reservations taken by phone.

  • Go for Argentina's steak!

    The local was dressed up very typically, even if the pure Argentinean soul was somehow 'contaminated' by other elements, like Mexican hats and South-America souvernir-style items. That is maybe because the Argentinean owner married a young lady from Cuba lately... I had my usual meat 'empanadas' and a large steak, which was nicely cooked. I also...


Brühl Transportation

  • Train

    Pretty much every regional train (not the white express trains) that runs from Cologne through Bonn stops at Bruhl. It takes about 15 minutes, and once you walk out of the station there it is: Augustusburg Palace. The main town is behind and to the right of the palace, if you want to do some further exploring. But the Palace and the gardens to the...

  • how to get to bruhl

    If you don't have a car, the easiest way of getting to Bruhl is by train. From Bonn or Koln (Cologne) trains are reaching Bruhl every 30 minutes. The trip is around 15 minutes and it leaves you just in front of the palace. Go out of the station and you will see signes for Phatasialand buss.Enjoy ;)

  • Train

    It is relatively easy to get to Bruhl from Cologne. The bus timetables are very easy to understand and the railway staff are very helpful if you are in doubt. One suggestion is just to give yourself plenty of time to study the times and you will be fine.

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whilst staying in the small town of Bruhl we came across this "childrens" ride in the middle of the town, we didnt understand why it was there, but being a child at heart I just had to have a go.

    How Old?? Young at heart
