Leisure facilities for residents and visitors are in plentiful supply in Bonn. The city offers something for all tastes and ages, from a relaxing walk at the foot of the Siebengebirge to a marathon run. Spectators are also well catered for with a wide variety of professional and amateur sporting events. Traditional sports in Bonn include the "Bonn Lion" men's foil fencing world cup tournament, the world dance champion-ships and the German three-day event equine championships on the Rodderberg. The "Telekom Baskets" have achieved great success in their respective discipline and are an excellent advertisement for sports in Bonn.
Bonn is justifiably proud of its greenery, from the court gardens behind the university and the banks of the Rhine in the centre, to the parks and vast forests like the nature reserve of Kottenforst.
Located at the geographical heart of Bonn, the Rheinaue Leisure Park, site of the 1979 National Horticultural Show, is almost as big as the city centre itself.
