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 rules

Since the state of North Rhine-Westphalia issued a general decree stating that the Corona incidence value was below the 100 mark for the fifth day in a row on Thursday, May 20, the federal emergency brake has been suspended since Saturday, May 22.

With that comes relaxations for sports. For example, when the incidence is between 50 and 100, non-contact sports are allowed at outdoor sports facilities with up to 20 people, among other things. A detailed overview is available on this page:

 Corona Rules (German Language)

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).
