Have you been to Bonn?
I was in Bonn in year end, City were with people who is checking the book, flower in the market.
On Christmas day, all shop closes at 14:00, so supermarket, fashion store are busy with people.
And You will forget this Time ideas if you do not schedule in advance.
Time schedule with supermarket is important in Germany
We are often talking about When supermarket is closing, and when its open and when to get
food by car, or by foot. As I am moved to Frankfurt last year and had no car, I was walking more than
ever in the city. Not for health only but also for just to go here and there.
Yes, beggining it is even difficult to buy ticket in German or in English. Interface and how you buy ticket
is completely different from Japan!
Bonn, walking is fun!
I do not know but Bonn like smaller scale city gives more fun. As it was said in Kyoto, when distance between shops to shops are planned in
smaller scale, and you can actually see more shops while you walk. Living in such a city must be fun to walk, for the person who does not like sports at all. In Germany, you often see people looking at the shop windown in weekend. Planning to buy gift for others or maybe for themselvs.
This happens also in Kytoto, but actually store like Insense, small tea things, giftshop are often open in the city. and you can buy while you walk.
Bonn also, you can see small shops, select shop or the cafe, it shows its character. I saw Betowen house as museum now, you can visit while you walk in the city center. First floor is kitchen and utility room and imagine how his family was here!
Park in Bonn
I love park in Bonn, its open and its flat and gives so much space. You can check
with Trip advisor what kind of park is in Bonn. There is also Japanese garden too.
I reccomend ofcourse April to Summer to come to Germany, but winter also you can see Romantic light and view.
Walking in Bonn or Kyoto?
Hope you enjoy both city. For visiting, moving to Japan, you can contact anytime to me that
I can support your Kyoto walking life. That is sustainable!
