I can highly recommend visiting Bonn Cathedral, however, unfortunately the church will be undergoing significant maintenance and renovation, and so will be closed for a few years.

The church is not that special or different from others. It has its historical value, of course. But what I consider 5 stars is the garden in the cloister center. One of my favorite places during the summer.

This cathedral is closed now for remodeling. The two statue heads of Roman soldiers outside are interesting.

Very nice and calm place, don't forget to visit the cloister too! Church will be closed for renovation for some time but cloister is still open and worth a visit.

This church dates from Roman but looks Gothic from work done in the 13th century. The cloister however still shows evidence of Roman work. It is not one of the best German churches but if in the square have a look.

It is a nice church but not worth taking a detour to see it. If you are in Munster Platz check it out. It will take you 5-10 minutes.

As I come from the city with highest church tower, I wanted to see the dome of Bonn. Unfortunately it was closed for renovations! Outside looks ok, but Ulmer Muenster is more impressive.

Not a cathedral, but still beautiful! It's free so it's definitely worth the trip. Some places are off limits to tourists.

If you are into history, this is the site for you. Bonner Münster is one of Germany's oldest churches, having been built between the 11th and 13th centuries, but its origins go much further back: excavations beneath the crypt located a “Cella Memoriae”, which had...More
