Arnhem is a bit nearer......2-3 hours.....or possibly Nijmegen.....

Maastricht would be the most interesting choice in my view
http://www.vvv-maastricht.eu/vvv_maastricht.html
It's also the closest Dutch city to Bonn. Shortly after Aachen (which is also worth a visit).

regional train network North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW)

public transport network Euregio Maas-Rhine
http://www.avv.de/web/download/netz/emr-netzplan.pdf
From Aachen there is also an express bus (#420) to Maastricht. You can buy a day ticket for this region (plays no role if you take the bus or train to Maastricht)

Good thing: There is a day ticket covering all local public transport in the state NRW. SchönerTagTicket NRW (HappyDayTicket NRW). EUR 23,50 for 1 person. EUR 33,00 for 2-5 persons.
Restrictions:
a) regional trains only
which makes the trip to the NRW/Dutch border even more time consuming, i.e. a day trip less worthwhile.
b) validity
Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day
Sa,So: from midnight till 3am next day

Hello!

Is it a better idea to get a Grman rail pass than to get a EURAIL pass? How is it to travel by the Autobahns?

Thank you,

Travel Tips for Bonn

Art & History

by prleprle

Roman soldiers first bridged the Rhine at Bonn in the year 11 BC. And the name "Bonna" appeared in official records between 13 and 9 BC. Two thousand years have left their mark in Bonn, tracing its development from a Roman camp into the settlement known as "Villa Basilica", and on through the Baroque era's Electoral Palace which today houses the University.

Especially worth seeing are the Basilica in the heart of the city, the venerable Münster in which kings were crowned between 1314-46; the two-storied church of Schwarzrheindorf; and Baroque Poppelsdorf Palace. Rounding out the historic array are magnificent turn-of-the-century villas. Bonn is renowned as the city of music. Ludwig van Beethoven first saw the light of day here in 1770. Paying homage to the great composer are Bonn's international Beethoven Festivals. His birthplace, with museum, is a must attraction. It is one of the characteristic Baroque town houses from the Electoral era.

With the National Art and Exhibition Hall and the new Art Museum, as well as numerous other collections, Bonn boasts a museum scene that is second to none. But the City of Beethoven has even more to offer. Such as the lovely Rhine riverbank promenade leading past the Beethovenhalle (concert hall), the old Customs House and Villa Hammerschmidt – all the way to Bad Godesberg, the diplomatic quarter. Frends and fun!

speak up i can't hear you

by heitzenrater

In the 19th century, the unveiling of the Beethoven memorial on the Münsterplatz was certainly the most important event. Both the Prussian King Friedrich Wilhelm IV and the English Queen Victoria were present at the ceremony, observing from the balcony of the Royal Palace.

Bonn has a lot to offer

Bonn's city centre is characterised by the pedestrian zone, with its many shops and the weekly market, the basilica and university. Numerous pubs, breweries and restaurants also make the city centre a popular place.
The city district on the eastern side of the Rhine, Beuel, is connected to the city centre by the Kennedy Bridge. Well known because of the "fifth season", carneval. Today the memorial to the laundry women remembers the pioneers of "Weiberfastnacht" in 1824. The memorial plaque on the Synagogenplatz in Beuel reminds one of one of the worst chapters in Germany's history. The Heimatmuseum Beuel is also worth seeing.

The Endenich district is particularly known for the Schumannhaus, where Robert and Clara Schumann once lived. Today there is a music bookshop here as well as a memorial room. The Springmaus in the Frongasse is also well known. If you're attracted by nature, then the Ippendorf area should please you; the Bonn city forest can be found here. The forest is a recreation area, containing a children's centre, Waldau, in which the animal enclosure is the most popular attraction. A visit to the Haus der Natur (House of Nature) is also delightful.

Grave of Robert and Clara Schumann

by margaretvn

In the same graveyard as Beethoven's mother is the grave of the composer Robert Schumann and his wife Clara. There is a map showing the most important graves but they are in the centre of the graveyard.

Art and Exhibition Hall

by Nemorino

The official name of this large and very popular hall is Kunst und Ausstellungshalle der Bundesrepublik Deutschland, which means Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany.

It features elaborate art exhibitions from all eras and cultures, for instance Baroque Art from the Vatican, French Masterpieces of the 17th and 18th Centuries, Chinese Burial Goods and Temple Treasures, art works from the Guggenheim and "Angkor - Sacred Heritage of Cambodia". Typically, each exhibition remains for three to four months, and is then replaced by something else.

The hall is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays 10 a.m. - 9 p.m. Thursdays - Sundays, including holidays (even those which fall on Mondays) 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. Admission is EUR 7.50 regular and 4.00 reduced. There are also various other options, like a two-day ticket and a joint ticket with the nearby Art Museum Bonn. (Free if you have a Bonn Welcome Card.)

Neu Und Old

by Bilimari

Bonn has very welcoming and nice feel. I enjoyed the walk around the city center, old town, or by the Rhein.

The river cruise was a bit too long (4 hours), but it was still very nice and relaxing.

I will add information and photos to this page later.
