I've been studying in Cologne for more than 6 years.
Apart from the downtown riverside area the town is not beautiful imho.
The biggest plus of Cologne are its friendly and tolerant inhabitants.
And it's definitely not boring!

Thanks, I was planning to say the same thing about Cologne.
It's not the most beautiful city I ever visited, but it's not boring at all. There are great museums and it's a great party/clubing/bar city. And I must say, today Germans are about the friendliest and most tolerant people in Europe.

Quote:
Bonn is located in the Cologne/Bonn Region, about 20 kilometres south of Cologne on the river Rhine.
Iit was the capital of West Germany from 1949 to 1990 and the official seat of government of united Germany from 1990 to 1999. Starting in 1998, many national government institutions were moved from Bonn to Berlin.

Bonn remains a centre of politics and administration, however. Roughly half of all government jobs were retained as many government departments remained in Bonn and numerous sub-ministerial level government agencies relocated to the former capital from Berlin and other parts of Germany.

The City currently hosts 17 United Nations institutions. The number of UN agencies in Bonn, most of which are based at the newly established United Nations Campus in the city's former parliamentary quarter on the banks of the Rhine, continues to grow.

From 1597 to 1794, it was the residence of the Archbishops and Prince-electors of Cologne, and is the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven (born 1770).
