General Information

You will find general information about Bonn on the following Web sites. [But don't get too enthusiastic over this world of information: Sooner or later you will end up on a German page, where no English version is available. Sorry!] Maps of Bonn you can find also on those sites. But one of the best maps, although only in German, is provided by a different service: Below some links extracted from the Web sites listed above are given for some main topics.


Bonn is beautifully located at the bank of the river Rhine, with the scenic Siebengebirge hills in the distance. If the weather is fine, it is certainly a good idea to go for a walk or hire a bike and discover the surroundings. Also in the city there are many points of interest.
The probably best survey is provided by the sightseeing page on (right now only in German!).


One of the cultural main attractions in Bonn is the so-called 'Museumsmeile': A long street - consisting of Friedrich-Ebert-Allee and Adenauerallee - with several museums close together. Two remarkable museums of art are there the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Art Museum Bonn. You can reach them easily from the central station 'Hauptbahnhof Bonn' by subway lines 16, 63 or 66 southbound to Heussallee or by busses no.610 or 630.
A good survey on most of the museums in Bonn you can find at the culture page on (right now only in German!).

Other Culture

Beethoven is said to be the most famous son of Bonn. [Hausdorff for example also lived and sadly died in Bonn, but maybe he cannot beat Beethoven in the 'general famousity rating'.]
You can visit the birthhouse of Beethoven, which now hosts a museum. The Beethoven concert hall (in German only) is directly located at the river Rhine, about a 15 minutes walk from the workshop location. Unfortunately there is no concert during the workshop in this place. But our conference dinner will take place at the restaurant 'Da Capo' of the Beethoven hall.

If you are interested in any cultural events, please visit the page (in German only).
