Bonn: The Charming Federal City on the Rhine=20
Each year, Bonn welcomes more than two million visitors. There are many way=
of reaching this city. One of those is along the Rhine which is the most
=84European=93 of all rivers. On its way from the Alps to the North Sea, it
flows for 18 kilometers within the boundaries of Bonn accompanied by a
wealth of famous sights: castles and ruined fortresses, the romantic
Rolandsbogen - the last remaining window arch of a former castle, the
Siebengebirge hills, the Federal Government building, the Bonn Opera House
and the Beethoven Hall. Even as the German capital, Bonn retained the
characteristics that make it what it is today: a medium-sized Rhineland cit=
offering maximum quality of life to those living there and located in one o=
the loveliest, most romantic regions in Germany. A lot of famous composers
found their inspiration in this lovely city, where Ludwig van Beethoven was
born and has left his mark.
Cologne could be on your list of visits: nowadays, it is the biggest city o=
the state North-Rhine-Westfalia but already of great importance since the
ancient time of the Roman Empire. Cologne is famous for its well-known
romanic churches (12) and the gothic cathedral (UNESCO cultural heritage),
the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum, the Romano-Germanic archeological museum and
many more galleries.
D=FCsseldorf one of Germanies fashion cities, often called =84little Paris=
about 1 hour away from Bonn. It is the state capital of North-Rhine
Westphalia and administrative headquaters for most of Germanies heavy
industry companies. D=FCsseldorf=92s down-town area =84Altstadt=93 and the =
district =84K=F6nigsallee=93 are world famous. In addition, D=FCsseldorf=92=
nickname =84little Tokyo=93, points to the fact that the city houses Europe=
largest Japanese colony in Germany.
Amsterdam is not far away: it is the famous European North Venice, whose
canals in the old city center, the Rijksmuseum and the van Gogh Museum
challenge to make an exciting round trip. =20
Brussels the Belgian capital and administrative headquarters of the Europea=
Union is about 2,5 hours away from Bonn. Famous for its collection of uniqu=
houses from the decorated style and renaissance periods. Brussels today is
also famous for its restaurants in all styles found adjacent to =84la Gran=

Paris about 4 hours away by train - is always worth a trip. Needless to
mention its classical attractions like the Eiffel tower, Notre Dame and the
Champs-Elyse=E9s. Le Louvre and the Mus=E9e d=92Orsay are the most famous e=
out of dozens of exceptional museums. Above all, Paris is a unique
