A city over 2,000 years in age, Bonn is perhaps best known as the birthplace of world-famous composer, Ludwig van Beethoven. Though a visit to the Beethoven Monument is always worth your time when in Bonn, there's far more to the city than meets the eye. An array of beautiful buildings, world-class museums and outstanding shopping opportunities make Bonn a must for anyone looking to explore a different side of Germany. The de facto capital of West Germany in between the Second World War and the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bonn is a city awash in history, and the best way to experience everything it has to offer is by hiring a car.
It's far easier to pick up your rental car when your flight lands rather than once you're in the city, and with DriveNow, you can be assured of the best vehicle hire deals at Cologne Bonn Airport.
As you can likely tell by the name, Bonn shares an airport with nearby Cologne, Germany's fourth-largest city. Cologne Bonn Airport is close to both locations - with the airport around 20 minutes’ drive to either. Serving two cities, Cologne Bonn Airport is a busy one, with some 10.3 million passengers either arriving or departing in 2015. The facility serves 115 destinations across 35 countries, and you'll find the airport brimming with all the amenities you need - including a car rental facility.
The rental booths are situated at Terminal 2 in the arrivals area. At Cologne Bonn Airport, such reputable firms as Alamo, Budget, Hertz, Avis, Keddy, Enterprise, SIXT and Europcar are open for business, so when you book with DriveNow, it's a simple matter of strolling over and picking up the keys from your preferred vendor - it's as easy as that.
You simply cannot visit Bonn without stopping by Beethoven-Haus, the birthplace of the great composer himself. A museum since 1889, the building contains a fine collection of artefacts and handwritten sheet music, as well as an intricate statue of Ludwig van himself.
Bonn Minster, built between the 11th and 13th centuries, is one of the oldest cathedrals in Germany. The 11th century crypt is a highlight, as is the innovative crossing tower. For something a little different, head over to the Art and Exhibition Hall. An establishment recognisable by its three unique cone structures, this institutions showcases everything great about Bonn's contribution to science, technology and the environment.
