InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Bonn

Hello to all Americans in Bonn! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Bonn? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Bonn which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: expats moving to Bonn can look forward to life in a city with a very notable past. The federal city is a fast-growing city known for being the birthplace of famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven, its unofficial status as the “second capital” of Germany, being the seat of numerous UN institutions, and much more! With the comprehensive bus network, suburban (S-Bahn) and underground (U-Bahn) trains, regional railway connections, as well as four Autobahnen (motorways) connections, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in the towns of the Cologne – Bonn region, which are only a short journey away from Bonn’s center.

Although Bonn has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Bonn, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
