Explore and experience Bonn

Germany’s former capital Bonn is indeed a very special place, to learn about German history. In many places throughout the city you will encounter with Ludwig van Beethoven, Bonn’s most famous son as well as witnesses of the “Bonn Republic“. Not far from there the UNESCO World Heritage Site Upper Middle Rhine Valley greets its visitors with scattered medieval castles that are perched high up on the steep slopes along the river, overlooking acres of picturesque vineyards bordering the Rhine. It is a very beautiful place to linger. So why not combine your attendance at the VDI Congress Dritev with additional cultural highlights?
