Meet Our Community of Expats in Bonn!

Guten Tag! Welcome to the InterNations expat network for the German city of Bonn! When you join our social network, you're entering an active community of expats and global minds who are happy to share local recommendations, practical advice and "dos and don'ts" to help you to fully acclimatize to your new home. Feel free to ask our many recent and long-term residents of Bonn any questions you might have about the city — such as the cost of living in Bonn, public transport connections to Cologne and where to find the open air markets in the city. Once you've had some time to settle in, be sure to share your own experiences of life in Bonn, too. A laid-back, artistic city on a beautiful riverside setting, Bonn is one of Germany's hidden gems, offering a wealth of attractions to expats looking for their next move in Western Europe.

A visit of our community for Expat Dubai is recommend if other InterNations chapters across Western Europe are of interest for you. Or your next business trip takes you to our Expatriates Riyadh chapter…

Expat Life & Facts about the Local Economy in Bonn

A former capital of West Germany and still a key seat of government, Bonn is one of Germany's oldest and most prosperous cities. Sitting on the banks of the River Rhine and surrounded by rolling hills and vast forests, the city has a relaxed and nostalgic flair, with ornate palaces and cathedrals sharing space with extensive parks and green spaces. Some younger residents may find the city a little on the quiet side, but a large student population ensures a healthy bar scene, and the livelier Cologne is just a short train journey away.

Many expats are drawn to Bonn not just by the pleasant pace of life, but by business opportunities in major German and international organizations. Companies such as T-Mobile, Haribo, German Academic Exchange Service, and SolarWorld call Bonn home, and the diverse, generally financially comfortable population makes it an excellent prospect for independent businesses, too. A welcoming and well-connected city, Bonn is rich in opportunities for expats looking to experience a more low-key side of urban life in Germany.

Engaging with Like-Minded Expatriates in Bonn

When you join InterNations, you'll have the opportunity to exchange advice and ideas with a wide range of friendly expats living and working in Bonn. We're committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our community, which is why we ask our members to abide by our essential principles of trust, honesty and respect. We hope you will feel free to ask any questions about life in Bonn — from practicalities such as obtaining German motor insurance, understanding German business law or dealing with the risk of floods to social activities such as meeting up with fellow expats for food and drinks, taking a yoga class or forming an outdoor activity group. We also host regular InterNations networking evenings in Bonn, where you can mingle with fellow expats in a friendly atmosphere with drinks, great food and entertainment.
