Bonn & the Region

A wide range of attractions makes it well worthwhile to visit the former capital of the Federal Republic of Germany! The United Nations Campus – directly next to the new World Conference Center Bonn, the broadcaster Deutsche Welle, and the headquarters of both Deutsche Post in the Posttower and of Deutscher Telekom – is strategically located while also in an idyllic site on the beautiful river Rhine.

 

The big museums on the Museum Mile are the most prominent venues for exhibitions, but Bonn has many more museums than these! Over 30 of them – from the Akademisches Kunstmuseum with its art to the Zoologisches Forschungsmuseum with its research into animals – are rewarding places to visit.

 

Rhineland people love good entertainment, and this is reflected in a diverse cabaret and theatre scene: for example Springmaus in Endenich – Bill Mockridge’s establishment, which launched the careers of many well-known comedians, such as Bernhard Hoecker, Dirk Bach and Ralf Schmitz – as well as the Pantheon, the municipal theatre and opera house, the small Theater Bonn in Bad Godesberg, the Brotfabrik and the Brückenforum. Not to mention events such as Carnival in Bonn and the Rhine in Flames spectacle.

 

Visitors who like to be active can enjoy unspoiled nature on Germany’s most popular walking trail, the Rheinsteig, long walks in the wooded hills of the Siebengebirge, and a wonderful view from the Drachenfels rock in Königswinter and the Petersberg hill, where the Steigenberger Grand Hotel Petersberg occupies what was previously a famous guesthouse for the German government. Or pedal along one of many bike paths, on the rivers Rhine and Sieg or on the Ahr up to Bad Neuenahr or Ahrweiler. For those who appreciate natural scenery and want to see the Rhine from a different perspective, a boat trip with the Bonner Personenschifffahrt or KD (Köln-Düsseldorfer) is just the thing. Glide down the river to Cologne and Düsseldorf, or southwards towards Koblenz and the river Moselle, passing Marienfels Castle and the Loreley rock.
