Interrail day 24, 25, 26 & 27 - Bonn

I left Hamburg on the Tuesday and got on a 4-hour high speed train to Cologne—so great that they're included in the interrail pass—and arrived traditionnally late (thank you Deutsche Bahn ❤️).
My friend Johanna picked me up from Cologne station and drove us to her appartment in Bonn.

She generously offered to host me in her flat for the time I'd planned to stay in Bonn, even though she was only there half the time.

We arrived in the evening so decided to stay in for the rest of the day.

The next day, we set off to walk around Bonn in the early afternoon. Johanna took me to see the important places to see in the city.

One of our first stops was the Thalia bookshop. A bookshop is quite an unusual place to cite when deciding what to visit in a city, but this one is a bit special: it was built inside an old theater, and they've preserved some of the structure of the theater.

The next stop was the Namen-Jesu church in the centre of the city.

They had a bit of an exhibition going on, so it was another more lively church than usual.

We then ended up in the Bonn Minster, the more known church of Bonn.

After that, we continued roaming through the city, and I must say I really liked Bonn. There are a few places to see in Bonn, but more importantly to me, the atmostphere feels really nice.

The population stands only at about 300 000, but it's still a quite well known city in Germany because of its history. During the Cold War, precisely between 1949 and 1990, it was the capital of West Germany and still holds an important place in german politics today. It's also the birth city of Classical composer Beethoven.

The rest of my stay in Bonn (Thursday-Friday), I took as rest days so I essentially didn't do anything story-worthy.

I left Bonn on Saturday very early morning, with a train at 3:30am to save on a hostel night in Rotterdam.
