Sports. Outdoor activities.

Leisure facilities for residents and visitors are in plentiful supply in Bonn. The city offers something for all tastes and ages, from a relaxing walk at the foot of the Siebengebirge to a marathon run.

Corona: More exceptions for outdoor sports

As of Monday, March 8, 2021, initial relaxations are possible in various areas. Recreational and amateur sports on and in all public and private sports facilities, gyms and swimming pools remain inadmissible in principle. However, outdoor sports are now permitted with a maximum of five people from two different households. Groups of no more than 20 children up to and including 14 years of age with up to two training or supervising adults may also engage in outdoor sports together. A minimum distance of 5 meters must be permanently maintained between different persons or groups of persons.


Experience nature

Bonn is justifiably proud of its greenery, from the court gardens behind the university and the banks of the Rhine in the centre, to the open access parks and vast forests like the nature reserve of Kottenforst. Located at the geographical heart of Bonn, the Rheinaue Leisure Park, site of the 1979 National Horticultural Show, is almost as big as the city centre itself.

The Park Guide is available for collection at the Department of City Greens (Amt für Stadtgrün), Stadthaus, Berliner Platz 2, 53103 Bonn, Floor 5 E. Or send a self-addressed and stamped DIN A5 envelope (EUR 1.45).
