Schlosspark, Brühl

The Schlosspark (Palace park) is the park of Schloss Augustusburg, a Baroque palace in Brühl, North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. The garden was first designed in Baroque style by Dominique Girard, and established in 1728. It was partly changed to English landscape style during the 19th century. In the 1930s, the original design was restored. It is now a public park. The complete ensemble of palaces and gardens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

A large formal symmetrical parterre garden was established south of the palace. It was designed by Dominique Girard, a pupil of André Le Nôtre, who came to Brühl in 1727. His 1728 design, titled "garten-dessein", has been preserved in the schloss. South of the building, a symmetry "embroidery" parterre was structured by two pools with fountains on each side, and another large pool, the Mirror Pool, with fountains at the end, separating the parterre from the surrounding forest section.
