Companion Program Proposals

There are many things to visit around Bonn, also for conference participants!
Please visit the official websites of Bonn or Cologne, or have a look at the selection of the local organizing committee below.

Sight Seeing

Most museums offer guided tours in English or other languages. If you are interested in booking a tour or joining an already planned tour, contact the museums as soon as possible.


Directions: The fastest way to get to all sights next to the conference venue is walking; it will take you about three minutes, or maybe five minutes to Beethoven House.
To travel to the museum mile, enter the subway behind the conference venue (station "Universität/Markt"), take line 16 (to Bad Godesberg) or line 66 (to Bad Honnef), and exit the train at "Heussallee/Museumsmeile".


Cologne is reachable from Bonn within 25-30 minutes. There are many direct DB trains (e.g. RB26, RB48, RE5) from Bonn main station to Cologne main station, which is located next the the cathedral right inside of the city center. More information about Deutsche Bahn (DB)


Regional DB trains from Bonn main station to Cologne main station also stop at Brühl. More information about Deutsche Bahn (DB)
