What to do in Bonn for a day

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

There are some very interesting museums in Bonn:


Or you could do a short Rhine cruise, or just stroll along the city and the Rhine promenade.

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:

4. Re: What to do in Bonn for a day

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.
