Discovering Bonn

How does one get to know Bonn the best? For people, who are new to the city, the s.c. Bonner Bürgerbuch can be very helpful. It contains the most important addresses, city maps and leisure time tips and is available for free at the Bonn-Information at Münsterplatz (Windeckstraße 1). There, you can also book a guided city walk or a city tour.

Around Bonn by bicycle or walking

Do you prefer to experience city life on your own? Then you will find signs and information charts all around the city and its districts for bicyclists and walkers. At the Bonn Information point you can find suggestions for city rallies, which are especially designed for children and youth. Another hint is the brochure „Beethoven-Rundgang“, which shows the traces of the composer across Bonn. For people with a handicap, there is a special: Tourist-guide.

Who likes to experience the city by bicycle, finds very beautiful bicycle paths along the banks of the Rhine. The leisure park Rheinaue is also ideal for bicycle rides. 

Parks and gardens

In any case, you should follow the signs to the Botanic Garden of the University in the urban district Poppelsdorf. A walk along the outer facilities with their huge trees resembles a little vacation, when the weather is good.

Shopping and going out

In Bonn you can shop and dine as you please. Almost anywhere, groceries and products that one needs for everyday life can be found and all four urban districts have weekly markets.

It is not necessary to buy everything new. A great opportunity for a good bargain is the flea market at the Rheinaue, which is taking place from April to October on every third Saturday of the month. A guide to the second hand shops, rental places and trading offers can be found in the brochure of the city of Bonn „Gesucht und gefunden!“.

Bars, pubs and restaurants can be found in the free city magazine „Schnüss“ or on the websites Tourismus & Congress GmbH or simply be discovered by oneself.
