If you are in Bonn it is nice to visit the Mozart house. It is not a must see, but still ok for a short visit.

This is a very pretty house. Which is also supposed to hold a museum. But it is very unclear when you can actually enter. When we were standing there they changed the visiting times, by taking a new paper and taping that over the old...More

Hi Angie. For 6 hs I suggest that you must go to Beethoven House. After that, the Bonn Cathedral that is close. More than these two visits you will have no time.
