Bonn, Germany: Beethoven’s House, Christmas Markets, and Castles
First of all, this was the most fun road trip we’ve ever taken! If you’re going to Germany, you have to rent a cool car and drive on the Autobahn! Germany is the only country whose highway system doesn’t have a speed limit. We rented a Mercedes from Sixt and drove to Dusseldorf (amazing high end fashion, go there to shop), Bonn, Cologne, and Luxembourg. Bonn was a random city we decided to go to because it’s very close to Cologne, which was our end destination. I read that Bonn has some nearby castles, so that’s also what drew me to it. Also, little did we know, Beethoven grew up in Bonn, so we got to see his house! This was a perfect two day/one night trip, and we stayed in a beautiful hotel called Ameron Hotel Konigshof Bonn. There didn’t seem to be a ton to do in this city, but the Christmas market was beautiful, and seeing the castles was amazing.
So neat! Thanks for sharing! I love the castles! This may be dumb but are they just open for tours or does anyone live there?
