Insider tips for Bonn from Hotel zur Post
Marvellous views and great wine in Bonn
Climbing Drachenfels: my suggestion for the morning
A perfect day in Bonn commences of course with a first-class breakfast at Hotel-Restaurant Zur Post. For our guests, the abundant selection is already included in the room rate. Actually everyone can compose his/her individual breakfast. Invigorated this way, we start an extended walk along wonderful Rhine Trail just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Don’t fail to climb Drachenfels hill – it compensates your efforts with a splendid panoramic view. Numerous points of interest – from the castle ruin and the magic Drachenburg Palace to Nibelungenhalle – line the hiking path. Here one can enjoy one’s very personal favorite trail. As an alternative, you may ascend the rock using the rack-railroad.
Lunch with a view
After a strenuous walk, one should let oneself be pampered on a culinary level. Siebengebirge with Drachenfels offers the perfect starting point for a break in Königswinter, a snug little town in proximity to Bonn. What’s for example about a wine degustation with the wine-grower? Add a delicious lunch with a view over the Rhine – that’s the perfect midday break!
On the water: atmospheric boat ride in the afternoon
After appeasing your whatsoever hunger, go back in the direction of Bonn. The most beautiful way leads straightaway over the water: a boat of “Bonner Personen Schiffahrt” chugs slowly across the Rhine while you enjoy the sun and the fresh airstream on deck. And en passant, the boat trip offers moreover spectacular views over the entire Siebengebirge – perfect for combining sightseeing with a boat ride!
City stroll in the evening
For the hours between afternoon and evening, I recommend an extended city stroll across historic Bonn. The moment is quite the perfect one for those wanting to avoid overcrowded pedestrian zones and preferring to calmly discover the city’s numerous sights. An absolute must for any sightseeing-trip is for instance Altes Rathaus at Marktplatz, constructed according to opulent rococo style. Here you may take one more coffee in a beautiful ambiance.
Perfect day, atmospheric epilogue
For an adequate epilogue of the perfect day in Bonn, I suggest you to pay a visit to our on-site restaurant. Hotel guests enjoy here regional specialties in a cozy atmosphere. From healthy salad to hearty meat or fish, all culinary requirements are cared for. After dinner, one should pay a visit to close Rohmühle or Pure Gold Bar where you can resume your day with a dreamlike view over the Rhine.
