LandmarksYour sightseeing tour through Bad Godesberg
When it comes to historical landmarks, Bad Godesberg is right up there with the rest. After all, Bad Godesberg's history » goes back thousands of years. In this overview you will find all the places you should visit on your sightseeing tour. By the way, they are all within easy walking distance of our hotel.
First things first: The Godesburg is the namesake of the city district and thus its most important landmark. The 800-year-old castle offers a perfect view over Bad Godesberg, the Siebengebirge and the Rhine valley. Also worth seeing: the adjacent castle cemetery with graves of some important personalities.
The ball and concert house in classicist style is not only a real eye-catcher, but also serves as a venue for particularly exclusive events nowadays. Right next door is the " House on the Redoute", a former chamber theatre that is now used as an exhibition venue.
Rathaus in der Kurfürstlichen Zeile
If you are a fan of classicist architecture, Bad Godesberg is really the place to be. The town hall consists of six houses lined up next to each other, which were also built in the style of this era. Incidentally, these were originally built by Elector Max Franz as lodging houses.
The bastion directly on the banks of the Rhine in the Panorama Park looks like a small castle. In the past, tickets for the adjacent steamboat landing stage were sold here. Today it houses a restaurant and is thus the perfect stop when your stomach starts rumbling on the sightseeing tour.
Bad Godesberg mineral springs and Draitsch well
The two drinking water springs, the Kurfürstenquelle and the Draitschquelle, are said to have a health-promoting and healing effect. The Draitsch Spring was made into a well in the 18th century and turned Bad Godesberg into a health resort. You can fill up on water from both springs for a small fee at the drinking pavilion.
Every sightseeing tour must include at least one church building! Our last recommendation for an impressive sight in Bad Godesberg is therefore the Michael Chapel. Here you can visit the magnificent interior in baroque style.
