Shopping in Bonn
The historical downtown of Bonn invites to relaxed sightseeing and shopping in Bonn!
The main attraction of downtown Bonn is the market plaza with the baroque town hall under nightly illumination. The narrow streets around the market plaza have been consolidated to form the pedestrian area of Bonn. Around the Munster plaza you may find many big names from the warehouse and fashion scene. Small cafes and snack bars invite you to refreshments and beverages while watching the stream of people move along.
Shopping in Bonn is by no means limited to the international brands. The Friedrichstrasse in Bonn attracts with its smaller shops and offerings different customers with a sense for the unusual and unexpected. Modern style of living and antique furniture coexist in close neighborhood. The culinary taste is served by fine restaurants and cosy wine bars after successful shopping tours.
Those of you who are exhausted by the bells and whistles of the contemporary shopping scene should think of a relaxing walk along the banks of the river Rhine. Starting at the market plaza and strolling through the estate of the university the Rhine promenade can be easily reached. A deviation to the Opera house rewards with a nice view over the Rhine to Bonn-Beuel.
Those of you who want to see more from the historical past of Bonn should think of walking along the Poppelsdorfer Allee to the castle with the same name which is the home of the Zoological Institute of the University of Bonn.
