Since Bonn is no longer the capital of Germany it has changed a little but it certainly has not lost any of its attractiveness as a city. Bonn belongs to one of the most attractive destinations of Germany and along with its surrounding area- a visit is well worthwhile. There is lots to see and discover in this harmonious city where the course of the river Rhine runs through. There is lots of architecture worth seeing that have left their mark behind and allows you to recognise the history of the city once more. You can also expect a varied selection of museums that have a long cultural history that is rich in tradition- above all in music. The composer Beethoven is by far the most famous example. In the surrounding area there is also lots to see. Bonn is known as “The Gate to the Romantic Rhine” and what we recommend you do is to take an eventful tour of discovery of Bonn and its surrounding areas. In order to do this, it is best to book a cheap car hire. You will certainly find enough pick-up stations located there.
A sacred construction that you should definitely not miss out on is the cathedral of Bonn that creates the image of the city due to its 5 enormous towers and should definitely not be overlooked. The cathedral in Bonn is a wonderful example of some of the Rhenish style which is somewhere in between the Romantic and Gothic styles. This architectural construction that was completed in the 13th century is well worth seeing- and the history goes back even further. Archeological excavations have found that the underlying buildings date back to the 3rd century. Legend so has it that the Martyrdom of the two Christian Roman superiors was founded here- that are today honoured as Cassius and Florentius- the patrons of the city- they are easily reached in your car hire.
For a pleasant change, why not visit the Botanical Gardens in Bonn that can be found behind the “Poppelsdorfer” castle and that belong to the University of Bonn. They were landscaped in the early 19th century and are ideal for going for a relaxing walk. More than 8000 different types of plants from throughout the world make for a complete experience. Next to the splendid array of plant-life there are also 10 greenhouses that originate from 1818 and were established with the park. Today they are important research facilities of the university and at the same time an attraction for those of you that love anything botanical. There is a permanent exhibition consisting of lectures and events that allows an interesting insight into the world of plants.
