Plane, train, or automobile? Any of the three would be a good choice when traveling to Bonn.
The Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN) is the major airport that serves the area. The airport is located halfway between Cologne and Bonn. A number of regional and international airlines serve the airport. Direct flights from the United States originate from Newark (EWR). CGN is the base airport of Germanwings—one of the main German low-cost airlines serving about 70 destinations around Europe. From the airport, you can choose to rent a car (Avis, Hertz, Europcar, and Budget all have service desks at the airport), take a taxi, the bus SB60, or train (via Cologne or Siegburg) to Bonn. The taxi costs around 40 Euros. The bus costs about 6.50 Euro and brings you directly to the Bonn central station (Hauptbahnhof).
The main rail station in Bonn is connected to the EC, IC, and ICE lines. Bonn is also connected by tram to the high-speed train (station in Siegburg) that provides service between Frankfurt and Cologne, offering a fast and reliable way to get to the city. Rail travel throughout Europe is reliable and efficient, and depending on your itinerary can be the best choice budget-wise. Check out the Deutsche Bahn website for updated timetable and pricing information.
Traveling by car offers you the ability to go where you want when you want, without having to worry about timetables or transit strikes. You can pick up a rental car at the airport or in the city. To get to Bonn from the north, take the junction Bonn/Siegburg, the A59, the A61, and the A565. From the south, take the B9 through the Rhine Valley.
