Bonn and the Rhineland

 According to Lonely Planet’s Guide to Germany, West Germany’s former capital “has reinvented itself with creativity and vigor. […] For visitors, the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven has plenty in store, not least the great composer’s birth house, a string of top-rated museums, a lovely riverside setting and the nostalgic flair of the old government quarter. […]  Bonn, which can conveniently be discovered by bike, lies in the heart of the Rhineland, one of Europe’s most famous landscapes. South of the city, the river flows between green hills crowned by medieval castles. The Siebengebirge nature reserve with its Drachenburg (Dragon’s Castle) and its excellent scenic walks is just a few miles up the river. The Eifel National Park and the River Moselle, where Germany’s best white wine is produced, are nearby. Tour boats take you from Bonn’s city centre to picturesque old towns and villages, such as Linz with its historical centre, its half-timbered houses and its fine restaurants. Cologne (30 km down the river) with its world-famous cathedral and Düsseldorf (90km), North-Rhine Westphalia’s state capital, deserve more than just one visit. South of Koblenz (60 km up the Rhine), where the Moselle flows into the Rhine, the Middle Rhine Valley has been declared UNESCO World Heritage.  Apart from all that, Bonn is a green city with a long and fascinating history, a progressive outlook, a rich cultural life and, last but not least, with inhabitants that are famous for their openness and their relaxed and easy-going lifestyle.   
To be based in our home is ideal for a family that, just like us, enjoys outdoor activities and likes to explore fascinating cities and beautiful countryside. Whether you like biking, walking or hiking, sightseeing, shopping or relaxing, our home is your place. We have lots of travel guides and brochures about Bonn and its surroundings waiting for you. We have also typed down numerous handy suggestions for cycling and motoring daytrips in the area, everything in German, English and Spanish.
