About this sound Brühl  is a town in the Rhineland, Germany. It is located in the district Rhein-Erft-Kreis, 20 km south of the Cologne city center and at the edge of the Kottenforst-Ville nature reserve.

Brühl received its town privileges in 1285. From 1567 on, the city of Brühl was the official residence of the Prince Bishops of Cologne. In the 18th century the Prince Bishop Clemens August replaced a former ruined castle and built the Augustusburg and Falkenlust palaces near the city center. Today both are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Until 1990 Augustusburg palace was used by the federal government to receive foreign heads of states visiting West Germany.

Brühl station is on the Left Rhine line and the nearby Kierberg station is on the Eifel Railway. Brühl also has several stops on line 18 of the Cologne Stadtbahn.
