Cultural Bonn

With over 2,000 years of history, Bonn is a historically and culturally significant city that attracts thousands of visitors every year. Located in the heart of Europe, it is easy to reach many of the most exciting historic and fascinating European locations. From Bonn, it is only a three hour train ride to Amsterdam or four hour ride to Paris. Many European cities such as London are also only a one hour plane ride away.

Settled along the Rhine River, students can easily enjoy the beauty the region of Bonn has to offer and visit areas such as the famous mountain range Siebengebirge, the Eifel National Park, or the beautiful Loreley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site found in the Upper Middle Rhine Valley which is filled with medieval castles and romantic towns.

Students coming to Bonn to learn about German language and culture can also immerse themselves in many of the cultural attractions in and around Bonn such as:

  • Bonn’s “Museums Mile” which is comprised of museums focusing on topics from post-war
    history to art to natural sciences.
  • Beethoven’s birthplace; Bonn’s most popular son still sets the tone for various events and
    concerts.
  • Bonn’s proximity to Cologne (25 minutes by train), which is Germany‘s fourth-largest city.
    Cologne boasts the country’s largest university; a multitude of cultural activities such as
    concerts, open air festivals and art exhibits; and many globally-recognized attractions such
    as Cologne Cathedral and Museum Ludwig.

Studying in Bonn therefore means studying in a friendly, safe, exciting and scenic location that offers you a wide range of options to study the German culture and language and to enjoy the young, diverse way of life in Germany.
