The former capital of Germany has a wide range of attractions that make it a rewarding destination! The United Nations Campus in the immediate vicinity of the new World Conference Center Bonn, the radio station Deutsche Welle, the Post Tower and Deutscher Telekom has many strategic advantages and an idyllic location on the beautiful river Rhine.


Art and culture are especially important in Bonn. Exhibitions that attract millions to the Bundeskunsthalle (Federal Exhibition Hall), great contemporary artists in the Kunstmuseum, living history in the Haus der Geschichte, natural history in the Museum König, everything about calculating in the Arithmeum and displays on the history of the Rhineland in the  Rheinisches Landesmuseum – to name only the “big seven” on the Museum Mile. Not to forget the city’s “little gems” such as the August Macke Haus, the Frauenmuseum (Women’s Museum), the Ägyptisches Museum, the Deutsches Museum Bonn and the Ernst-Moritz-Arndt-Haus. A highlight, of course, is Bonn’s great son Ludwig van Beethoven, who is ever-present in the city, not only in the Beethovenhaus and the Beethovenhalle.


The Rhinelanders’ love of good entertainment is reflected in a varied cabaret and theatre scene. Bill Mockridge’s Springmaus cabaret theatre in the district of Endenich has been the  launchpad for the careers  of many famous comedians. The Pantheon, Theater Bonn, the opera house Oper Bonn, the small Theater Bonn in Bad Godesberg, the Brotfabrik and the Brückenforum are further venues. Not to mention events such as Bonn’s Carnival and the Rhine in Flames.


If you like outdoor activities, the choice is wide. Wonderful nature on the Rheinsteig, Germany’s most popular long-distance trail, long walks in the Siebengebirge hills and stunning views from the Drachenfels rock in Königswinter and the Petersberg, where a famous hotel that was once the government guesthouse is now the Steigenberger Grand Hotel Petersberg. Or get in the saddle for one of many beautiful bike paths on the rivers Rhine, Sieg and Ahr, which you can follow up to Bad Neuenahr or Ahrweiler. If you would like to see the Rhine and its natural world from a different point of view, take a trip on one of the many boats operated by Bonner Personenschifffahrt and KD (Köln-Düsseldorfer). Enjoy an excursion to Cologne, Düsseldorf, towards Koblenz at the mouth of the Moselle or to the Loreley rock.
