Discover the hotel

In a fantastic location overlooking the bay of Cologne and providing wonderful views of Cologne Cathedral, the Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg certainly knows to fascinate all visitors – may it be on a business trip, a city break to Cologne, or a wellness weekend.

Many festivities and events have taken place in our gourmet hotel against the backdrop of such wonderful scenery - not to mention a number of weddings. In fact, Schloss Bensberg is a pretty much ideal venue for weddings. For example, loving fiancées can say “yes” to each other in our baroque Zanetti hall. After that, everyone can move on to the wedding celebration – with Cologne as a constant backdrop – or the couple can rest briefly in a luxury suite.

Versailles and Winchester Castle served as architectural models when Prince-Elector Johann Wilhelm II of Duesseldorf – shortened to Jan Wellem in the Rhineland dialect – ordered the construction of his “Maison de Rétraite” at a prominent site on the Bensberg mountain terrace with a breathtaking view of the cathedral city of Cologne.
