Bonn - Beethoven's Birthplace


Former capital of Germany, Bonn, is famous for the birthplace of Beethoven.  Situated on the Rhine, Bonn has a mild climate and a beautiful surrounding hilly area to offer with lots of bike trails and hiking possibilities. A boat trip is a treat especially on a sunny day like this. Its castle Poppelsdorfer Schloss has a famous botanic garden. Some of the former castle buildings house the city's university and one big archway is the only building I know with traffic running right through it.

Along the Rhine, many a little cafe or beer garden offers refreshments.Some are even on Facebook...:)
Bonn is still the seat of the government's  Ministry of Justice and the Interior as well the seat of the German commission of UNESCO.
Not a bad place to live!
