Bonn - Gate to the Romantic Rhine

In a boat of the „White Flotilla“ (Bonner Personenschiffahrt) you will go up the Rhine to Königswinter, passing various attractions. From this special viewpoint you will see Bonn’s situation as the „Gate to the Romantic Rhine“ , the modern skyline of the city, the parliament quarter and the ruin of the Godesburg. The scenic Siebengebirge with the Dragon’s Rock, a place steeped in legends, is a highlight of this tour. Explanations will be given by audio-set. In Königswinter you will have time to stroll through the picturesque little town, or to go up to Dragon’s Rock per rack railway (fare not included). The boat will leave at 5:20 p.m. for Bonn and you will be back at 6 p.m.
