Pretty building in a very pretty part of bonn. Nice when the sun is out as the colors are best then. I found the surrounding neighbourhood very nice to walk through. Overall a nice spot for a short visit

It's a great place for a walk, lay a blanket on the green and lazily watch people walk by. The avenue leading up to the Palace has a small bookshelf where people can drop books and pick a new one up.

The best way to visit this buildings is to approach on foot down the Poppelsdorf Allee. This is a beautiful wide road with very little traffic and an area of grass in the middle. The palace is at the end and the allee goes on and on with the palace gradually becoming bigger.
