Bar­ri­er-free ex­per­i­ences in Bonn and the Rhein-Sieg dis­trict

A cul­tur­al city, sur­roun­ded by ma­gic­al nat­ur­al land­scapes

Beeth­oven’s birth house, a great mu­seum land­scape, and a pleth­ora of Rhine ro­man­ti­cism char­ac­ter­ise Bonn and the Rhein-Sieg dis­trict.

If you are looking for an ideal mix of culture and nature, you can spend a few restorative and diverse days here. As the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven, Bonn is a pilgrimage site for music enthusiasts from around the world and hosts the annual world-renowned Beethovenfest, a festival of classical music with a different focus subject for each instalment. At the same time, it is the former capital city of the Federal Republic of Germany, a student city, and was founded by the Romans two millennia ago.

Unsurprisingly, the city has a lot to tell, and offer, its visitors. The museum density in Bonn makes the hearts of all people interested in culture beat faster.

Drachenburg Castle and romantic views of the river Rhine

Drachenburg Castle, a truly magical castle, is towering high above Königswinter, halfway up to the Drachenfels and in the middle of the Siebengebirge nature park. Visitors will find a breath-taking panoramic view of the river Rhine and the surrounding landscapes here. They can walk up or take the historical rack railway.

The Siebengebirge range rises high above the Rhine and is best known for its unique views of the river. Along with the gorge-like valleys, densely forested peaks, and rough rocks, they have inspired painters, poets, and travellers taking hikes and walks here for centuries.
