Exploring Bonn, Bad Godesberg & Königswinter, North Rhine Westphalia, Germany - August 2018.



The Federal City of Bonn is a city on the banks of the River Rhine in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia, and is situated about 24 km (15 mi) south-southeast of Cologne. Bonn is in the southernmost part of the Rhine-Ruhr region, Germany's largest metropolitan area, with over 11 million inhabitants. Because of a political compromise following German reunification, the German federal government maintains a substantial presence in Bonn, and the city is considered a second, unofficial, capital of the country.

Bad Godesberg is a municipal district of Bonn, southern North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. From 1949 to 1999, while Bonn was the capital of West Germany and later Germany, most foreign embassies were in Bad Godesberg.

Königswinter is situated on the right bank of the Rhine, opposite Bad Godesberg, at the foot of the Siebengebirge. It covers an area of 76.19 square kilometres which makes it the fourth-largest conurbation in the Rhein-Sieg district. It contains over 80 townships and boroughs, divided over the municipal districts of Stieldorf, Niederdollendorf, Oberdollendorf, Heisterbacherrott, Ittenbach, Oberpleis, Eudenbach, Thomasberg and Königswinter proper.

This film features an extensive and detailed exploration of Bonn, Bad Godesberg and Königswinter. The film begins at Boon Hauptbahnhof, before taking a walking tour of the city centre and Sudstadt areas, from here the tram (stadtbahn) is taken to Hochkreuz, where the journey continues on foot through Gronau, and along the River Rhine including the Freizeitpark Rheinaue.



The journey south, crosses the border back into Hochkreuz, before going through Plittersdorf, and Rüngsdorf to get the ferry across the River Rhine to Königswinter. Here a couple of brief stops for food and a swim at the Maritim Hotel are followed by a walk around the city centre, and a ride up and down the Drachenfels Railway, where views across North Rhine Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate are taken in.



After Königswinter, the tram is taken up the East bank of the River Rhine, back to Hochkreuz, where there is a small detour on foot through the Maritim Hotel, Bonn, before taking the tram back to Bonn Hauptbahnhof, and finally the train out of Bonn North. This film was made over three separate days.
