If you have come to Bonn for culture, then you should head straight for the Museum Mile, which stretches over several kilometers. Cultural enjoyment begins with the Museum König , in which you can wonder at animal specimens and exhibits. It contains Germany's largest zoological collection. The Haus der Geschichte is next, which emphasizes post-1945 history. And not to be forgotten is the Bonn Art Museum . Here, art of the 20th Century, mainly expressionism, is on display. Regularly changing exhibitions are held here.

Easy parking too. But make sure you have a map or car navigation equipment. The route to this part of time is very poorly indicated. The route signs don't offer much help!
