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.
Leave the hire car behind and take a stroll through beautiful Bonn
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.
