| Extraordinary encounters: history of the Benrath Palace and Park Foundation

The Benrath Palace and Park ensemble harmoniously unites apparent opposites. Completed in 1770 according to plans drawn up by Nicolas de Pigage, architecture and landscape merge, complementing and enhancing one another. And so it is not surprising that the palace and gardens not only have landmark status, but that the park has also been declared a nature sanctuary. The Benrath Palace and Park Foundation has dedicated itself to the preservation of this unique symbiosis. It colorfully stages the encounter between the present and the past with its museums and events. Besides the history of the building and its use, this volume presents the work performed by the foundation at this exceptional site. Texts and magnificent pictures by the architectural photographer Marcus Schwier take readers on an extraordinary stroll through space and time.
