Augustusburg Castle

The first documentary reference to Brühl was recorded in the year 1180. This was when Archbishop Philipp von Heinsberg of Cologne founded a manor house to administer the local estates which quickly became a significant local seat. In 1285 Brühl received its city charter from Archbishop Siegfried von Westerburg and self-administering courts were established. In 1469 Brühl became the capital of the county and was also chosen as the residence of the Cologne Archbishops. For almost 150 years the Cologne Archbishops territory was ruled from Brühl.
