It’s the worst kept secret that the Heerstraße is very popular among tourists. But the travel tour operator Travelcircus has now selected the street as one of the 15 most beautiful in the world - amongst Lombard Street in San Francisco, Portobello Road in London and the Champs-Élysées in Paris. When looking for the most beautiful streets and roads in the world everyone quickly turns to the Champs-Élysées in Paris or Lombard Street in San Francisco, naturally. The 163 Highway in Utah is well known amongst movie fans also(too) - the concrete road through Monument Valley was made world famous by Tom Hanks when he - as „Forrest Gump“ - jogged on it and suddenly decided to end his running there.
But to find a Bonn street amongst those roads in the ranking of the world’s most beautiful examples, is at least surprising. The travel tour operator Travelcircus lists Heerstraße in the 15-long-list now. Not only Bonn people consider the Heerstraße as the home of the cherry blossom. To be ranked amongst the most beautiful streets the Heerstraße only needs about ten to 14 days in April - because then the trees are in full blossom and draw innumerable tourists from all over the world to Bonn. But the Heerstraße is not the only one with a pink roof in Bonn: As well as the cherry trees there you can also find some in the Maxstraße, the Dorotheenstraße and the Paulstraße.
Although those are not mentioned in the Travelcircus list. Heerstraße is the only German street mentioned in the list. The residents can feel assured now finally and officially to be living on Germany’s most beautiful street.
Here’s the entire Travelcircus list of the 15 most beautiful streets in the world:
