Go for a walk in the long park towards the palace. It's nice and quite with beautiful houses on both sides. You sense a lot of "old money" in this city

This Palace is absolutely beautiful. The grounds are great for a picnic. It's a good place to take families with kids. And good for solos you just want to sit and read a book.

This imposing building has seen better days, at least based on the appearance of the exterior. It has been turned into an office building so the stop-and-stare factor is at play here. It is pretty enough, from a distance, to be appealing and it is...More

Loved visiting the Poppelsdorf Palace and botanical gardens. It was a great way to enjoy Bonn. We loved listening to the frogs croak in the fountains and walking around the meandering pathways, getting lost in it all. And who doesn't like a palace?

Very beautiful place with lovely gardens. It gives you a glimpse of how the wealthy lived. It's a popular wedding venue, and we saw two of them.

Poppelsdorf palace and the surrounding area is beautiful. Ideal for a long walk and there's plenty of restaurants/cafe's within a 5 minute walk from there. Definitely a must see if visiting Bonn!

I wandered over to the palace and really enjoyed it. The walk there is peaceful and the place is beautiful. There is not much to see inside, but it is worth the walk.
