Bad Godesberg


Dear citizens, dear friends in Germany and abroad!

Welcome to the website of the City District of Bad Godesberg, Bonn's second-largest district. The formerly independent town of Bad Godesberg was integrated into the greater City of Bonn in the course of the local government reorganisation in 1969. Like all four districts of the City of Bonn, Bad Godesberg, too, has its own typical features. And that makes the City of Bonn such a charming place worth to live in.

Until the transfer to Berlin of Parliament and parts of the government, Bad Godesberg was renowned as the ‘diplomatic district’ as almost all embassies had settled down in this scenic part on the Rhine soon after Bonn had become the Federal Capital. In the past, Bad Godesberg proudly called itself ‘the Garden Town on the Rhine’. Also at present, parks and avenues are to be found all over the district and make it a particularly attractive residential area.

Today, about 70 000 people live in Bad Godesberg. Its landmark, the Godesburg Castle, is visible from afar. The tower of the castle, erected by the Cologne Archbishop Dietrich I in 1210, boasts an impressive view of the city, the hills of the Siebengebirge, the Rhine Valley, and the plain stretching towards Cologne. Today, the castle houses a restaurant which also offers to its guests a splendid panorama view.
We wish to invite you to visit this website and to get to know more about Bad Godesberg.

Yours sincerely

Simone Stein-Lücke
