This little star of a Rhineland city shows off the best of German living. Compact but choc-a-bloc with culture: if those two qualities help to define your ideal city, you’ll probably get on well with Bonn. Capital of the former West Germany, Bonn ceded its status to Berlin with reunification and, since then, has been forging a very different path from its big city sister. Where Berlin has hipster grunge aplenty, Bonn, birthplace of Beethoven, retains the urban buzz and adds to it a clutch of superb museums and galleries, a renowned classical music scene and a tranquil Rhineside setting that makes it the perfect stage for enjoying the finer things in life.
