Bensberg Palace

Bensberg, Germany

Bensberg Palace (Schloss Bensberg) is a former hunting lodge of the Counts Palatine of the Rhine (the House of Wittelsbach). The palace was commissioned by Johann Wilhelm, Elector Palatine for his wife Anna Maria Luisa de' Medici. Anna Maria Luisa enjoyed the site's elevated scenery and views onto the River Rhine, Rhine Valley and Cologne Bight. The building was designed by Italian Baroque architect Matteo Alberti and completed in 1711.

Today Bensberg Palace is a hotel.

Really nice 5 star hotel! Awesome service and a very welcome feeling! amazing food and a nice spa area.I would give 5 stars but I wasn't able to turn off the heating (central system not manually in the room) which was quite loud. So I'll be back in summer !

A great five star hotel with peerless service and cleanliness. The food for breakfast was great and for a company event we also ate lunch and dinner at the hotel - exceptional. Really feels like royalty staying in this castle!

Superb rooms, extremely quiet and fantastic beds. Lovely pool area and very good gourmet food. A nearby forest is ideal for trekking and if you brought your electric Porsche with you, it can be charged in their spacious garage under the hotel.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
