Rhine in flames

Place: Bonn

From the 1st weekend of May, the Rhine between Bonn and Linz will be "on fire" again on a regular basis. An elaborate fireworks display is a highlight both from the water and from the land and even gets the old-established Bonners from their sofa. Old fortresses, toll castles and romantic ruins are bathed in a colourful light.

Beethoven Festival

Place: Bonn

Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Bonn in December 1770 and spent the first 22 years of his life here. He is still considered to be the most played classical composer in the world today.

Every year in September, during the Beethoven Festival, Bonn becomes a venue for international orchestras, ensembles and soloists.

On the market square, the church square, in the pedestrian zone and in many surrounding streets life still rages in Bad Honnef in autumn.
