Bonn is the former capital of West Germany. At the reunification of Germany Berlin again became the capital and the parliament and many ministries were relocated to the new capital. Many annexes and sub-departments of ministries are however still domiciled in Bonn.
The city has 320,000 inhabitants.
Bonn is situated in the western part of Germany, on the Rhine, about 25 kilometers south of Cologne.
Although a large part of the public bodies has moved to Berlin, the government remains a big employer in Bonn. Many international organizations also have their German or European headquarters in Bonn and large German companies, such as Deutsche Telekom (and the mobile phone subsidiary T-Mobile) and Deutsche Post, are also based in the former capital.
The airport, Flughafen Cologne/Bonn or Konrad-Adenauer-Flughafen, is situated sixteen kilometers northeast of the city. The airport is easily reachable by rental car via Autobahn 59. The exit to the airport is clearly signposted.
Bonn has an excellent public transport system. It has a dense network of city busses and night busses. The city also has a good network of trams and metros.
Traffic and Parking
Part of Bonn's center is for pedestrians only. It's also difficult to find a parking space in the street. Luckily there are several parking garages inside and just outside the so-called Stadsring where you can safely park your car.
Because of its former status of capital Bonn has an extensive supply of accommodations. Ranging from simple guesthouses to luxurious five star hotels. The city does attract an increasing number of business and tourist travelers. It's therefore recommended to book your hotel room in advance, especially if you want to stay in Bonn in the summer months.

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
