Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed April 29, 2018

yes, this is a place both inhabitants of Bonn, people nearby and visitors go to enjoy a lovely spring and summer day. A lot of nature, flowers, trees, a lake, the river Rhein, little hills the children can run up and down, barbecue places, a restaurant, some activities to spend time. What else do you need?

I used to live in Bonn so know the area well. In fact I knew it when it was just green fields and a shepherd used to keep his sheep there. The National Garden Show in I think 1979/80 transformed the whole are into a park with lakes, gardens and a fantastic children's playground. Unfortunately the children's playground is gone but the Japanese garden remains.
It can be easily reached by a walk along the Rhine from the City centre or by public transport. It is right next door to where the parliament building was when Bonn was the capital. The park is a beautiful place to walk or cycle around with plenty of benches to relax. One can continue through the park along the Rhine to Bad Godesberg and further - the views are lovely across to the Sieben Gebirge.
When one reaches the end of the park if going towards Bad Godesberg you will come across a housing development which was the housing for the American diplomats. The church still remains and the schools is now an international one.
If you have a bike and cycle further along the Rhine you will also come across a very nice open air swimming pool - I have not been in years but I hope it is still nice, Germany has fantastic open air swimming pools. Bikes can be hired from behind the station in Bonn - cycling along the Rhine is lovely and flat!
When my children were small they loved the playground there so now it is gone but it still makes a great place for children to cycle or roller blade etc.

Lovely serene green park, where you can stroll through in delight! One of the best things that come with living in Bonn. Concerts or festivals are also organized in the park during summer and as it's a really big area, while one part of the park parties hard, the other side doesn't even hear a thing.

This extensive parkland on both sides of the Rhein is a super place for a walk (long or short). Bonn sights and neighbouring villages are well-signposted with approximate distance! Winter or summer - a lovely parkland!

When the weather is warm, Rheinaue offers a pleasant location to relax a while, either picnicking or walking along the river banks. In cold weather, you can watch the migratory birds in the lakes. It is easily accessible from central Bonn by bus or U-bahn and has a restaurant and various snack options. From time to time, there are music concerts or second-hand outdoor markets. Don't be deterred by the nearness of the UN buildings or the Deutsche Post tower, the Park is big enough to accommodate all the office workers as well as the tourists.
