Rental car Bonn: A journey through history

Town hall of Bonn

Explore the former capital of Germany: Bonn

In 1989, during the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bonn celebrated a big anniversary. This was the city's 2,000th birthday, where a Roman camp was already in pre-Christian times. Bonn gained even more importance when it later became the residence of the archbishops of Cologne. When did Bonn become the former capital of Germany? And in 1949 Bonn finally even became the capital of Germany before the federal politicians returned to Berlin in the course of reunification. Nevertheless, there are still parts of federal ministries and a number of supreme federal authorities in Bonn's city centre and the surrounding area. Accordingly, Bonn today bears the unique title of a "Federal City", unique in Germany. Of course, many buildings have survived from the times when the fortunes of West Germany were steered from here. This applies both to the former seat of the German Parlament (Bundestag) and to the former Federal Chancellery. 

Explore Bonn's historic buildings with a rental car

Stroll through Bonn

Stroll through the beautiful streets of Bonn

The city centre of Bonn is also worth a stroll. A good starting point for this is the historical marketplace of Bonn, where many traders still offer their groceries and other offers for sale and where the car can be conveniently parked in the parking garage. The architectural centrepiece of the market square is the Old Town Hall, which was built between 1737 and 1738 in the rococo style and where one can still marry today in historical rooms. The rental car can initially remain in the multi-storey car park, as a number of other attractions are within walking distance. 

Travel to Bonn with a rental car and discover the museums

Bonn is well connected by highway to other cities in Germany. Therefor you can reach the city easily with your rental car. There are also a number of important museums in Bonn. The most important museum is still relatively young. It was founded in 1994 by the then Chancellor Helmut Kohl and is dedicated to the history of the Federal Republic of Germany since 1945 as a "House of History". 7,000 exhibits and 150 media stations on 4,000 square metres illustrate the development of Germany after the end of the Second World War. Among the exhibits there are the original Mercedes limousine jused by the German chancellor, Willy Brandt's Nobel Prize certificate and the sneakers that Joschka Fischer wore when he was sworn in as the  Minister of the environmental affairs for the first time. 

The best museums in Bonn:

  • Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland
  • Zoologisches Museum Konig
  • Arithmeum
  • Kunstmuseum Bonn
  • Stadel Museum 

Rent a car and make a trip to Cologne

Cologne Cathedral

Drive from Bonn to Cologne and explore the city

The region around Bonn is also full of tourist attractions. First and foremost, the largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia is Cologne. At least once in your life you should have seen the magnificent building of the Cologne Cathedral for yourself. By car, you can quickly reach Cologne via the motorway and can park your rental car there conveniently close to the city centre. Like Bonn, the even larger city on the Rhine looks back on a history that goes back to Roman times. 

Visit the surrounding area of Bonn by rental car

Bonn is located in the Rhine Valley in one of the most beautiful areas of North Rhine-Westphalia for many people. If you have a rental car, you can explore the Rhine Valley by car from Bonn. The most beautiful part of the river begins practically beyond the city limits of Bonn. After only a few kilometres you leave Nordhrein-Westfalen at Drachenfels and reach the neighbouring state Rhineland-Palatinate. There are many historic walls on the mountains and rocks to the left and right of the river. Koblenz offers a beautiful destination, where the Moselle flows into the Rhine at the "Deutsches Eck".
