Bonn Germany, buildings and construction




I spent about a month in Bonn Germany and got to see a fair amount of the city. The city center is relatively small so walking around is a viable option. Being able to walk around was good as my German language speaking skills didn’t exist.

If you would like to find out about the city, I recommend checking out Wikipedia. And there is a good travel website Wikitravel which lists out all the places to visit, like Beethoven’s home.

As for this article, I have written a caption under each photo to give you an insight into my trip to ‘Bonn, Germany.’
