We will be in Bonn for one day and are interested in either sights in Bonn or easy day trips. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks Much

I find Cologne (Köln) more interesting than Bonn and it's only a 20-30 minute train ride away. Depending on your interests, you can visit the Cathedral and do the tower climb (which I have enjoyed), tour the Chocolate Museum with its 3 meter high chocolate fountain (yummy) or visit the Roman0-Germanic Museum (excellent!). For more ideas on things to see or do there, see:
I was lucky when I was in Bonn earlier this year and one of the museums had a great temporary exhibit. But otherwise I was disappointed, especially since I lived in Bonn for a summer and am inclined to like it. I agree with the advice: go to Cologne. It offers A LOT and not far from the main train station. So no wasted time.
