Sports. Swimming pools.

Early opportunities for toddlers and children, particular sports for adolescents or adults - there are many opportunities to take part in sports. Bonn has more than 100 municipal leisure and sports halls, 21 gym spaces, and 58 outside facilities perfect for keep-fit activities. There are 59 different sports to choose.

Corona: Numerous additional restrictions

Recreational and amateur sports activities on and in all public and private sports facilities, gyms, swimming pools and similar facilities are not permitted until January. Common rooms, including the rooms for changing and showering sports facilities, may not be used by more than one person at a time. Sports festivals and sports events remain prohibited. 

Clubs are therefore not allowed to use sports halls and sports fields in November. The swimming pools must also be closed for clubs and recreational swimmers. 

Excluded from the ban are sports and swimming lessons at schools, school examinations and examinations of courses of study, training at the North Rhine-Westphalian federal and state performance bases and the training of professional athletes on and in training facilities provided by their employer.

Competitions in professional leagues as well as other professional sports activities are permitted with approved infection protection concepts, but may only be held without spectators.

The city administration has provided both the schools and the clubs with appropriate information.


Spectators are also well catered to with a wide variety of professional and amateur sporting events. Traditional sports in Bonn include the "Bonn Lion" men's foil fencing world cup tournament, the world dance champion-ships, and the German three-day event equine championships on the Rodderberg. The "Telekom Baskets" play in the German Bundesliga and inspire spectators with their home games in the Telekom Dome, located in the Bonn district of Duisdorf.
