CITY OF BONN

Bonn, the former capital of Germany, is located close to Cologne in the West of Germany. Looking back on a history of more than 2000 years, Bonn is one of the oldest cities in Germany.
With about 310000 citizens Bonn is smaller than other big cities in Germany, but benefits from a modern infrastructure (airport, day and night buses, train, subway), beautiful landscapes and superior cultural attractions.
Bonn is located at the Rhine which is one of Germany's most beautiful rivers and invites visitors with its famous Rheinaue wetlands to enjoy barbeque and to take a walk through its fascinating landscape.
Bonn is also close to other European countries such as Italy, Spain, France and UK which you can easily reach by train, airplane or car.
