Tour description

During the free walking tour discover the most important monuments of the Old Town of Bonn.  Learn the history of this 2,000-year-old city, admire the Beethoven House - the birth place of the one of the greatest world’s composers, and other important landmarks of the former West German capitol.


Our tour starts in front of Five Guys Restaurant, next to the main railway station of Bonn. During the pleasant stroll through the medieval streets of the old town we will discover the nine-hundred-years-old Minster Basilica, built on a Roman burial ground and the Sterntor gate testimony to the city´s medieval fortifications. The highlight of the tour is the Beethoven House, today a museum that houses the largest privately-owned Beethoven collection in the world. We will learn some interesting facts from the life of the composer and his international career. Than we visit the Old Town Hall and the University of Bonn, the former electoral residence,  founded in 1818 by King Friedrich-Wilhelm III. Our tour concludes at the former tolling station „Alter Zoll“, which offers a wonderful panoramic view of the Rhine River and the Siebengebirge Mountains.

Si este hubiera sido mi primer tour no repetiría, por suerte fue el tercero. En primer lugar empezamos mucho mas tarde esperando a gente, como 20 minutos tarde. Comenzo muy nerviosa no se acordaba de muchos datos y tardaba mucho en explicar muchas cosas porque creo que sabia la información pero que no se lo había preparado bien. Empezó a hacer muchísima calor, como 30 grados a pleno sol, todo el mundo sudando y no tuvo en consideración la calor que estabamos pasando todo el grupo. Datos poco interesantes y muy aburrido, cuando pasábamos por al lado de algún edificio o monumento ni si quiera comentaba nada. No lo recomendaría para nada. Por suerte hay profesionales que si se lo preparan.
