Summer in Bonn

We will walk along the Rhine River to discover nature in floodplains and parks. We will observe and learn about plants, animals and fungi, and find out why they are important, take pictures or make small sketches, and walk and talk in a relaxed and international atmosphere.

Join us! People of all backgrounds, ages and nationalities are welcome! Our main language will be English, but can switch to other languages (German, Italian) if necessary. 

VHS Adult Education Center offers an English programme for expats

The Volkshochschule Bonn (VHS) adult education center includes classes in its regular programme which particularly address the English-speaking citizens of Bonn. The former capital of the Federal Republic of Germany has become Germany's UN City and has thus attracted a considerable number of international organisations. Many employees of the UN, of international institutions and global players, such as Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Post DHL, come from abroad. These so-called expats live and work in Bonn for a limited time. VHS provides these foreign guests with the opportunity to get to know their host city a little more and, at the same time, to get in contact with other citizens of Bonn.
