Weekend May 18-21

What’s happening in Bonn and the region?

Bonn never gets boring - there’s plenty of lovely things happening this - long - weekend.

BONN/REGION. It’s a long weekend ahead - so even more reason to check out what’s going on in Bonn, Cologne and the region these days. The FedCon might fascinate you if you’re into SciFi, but with the Lego and the Bonsai Exhibition there are much smaller events taking place which are just as interesting…

COMING UP

Pfingstmontag is coming up, the Monday after Whitsunday - a National Holiday and unusually this year followed by a whole week of school holidays. Please be aware that many music schools, sports clubs and similar institutions are also closed during the coming week.
