Bonn: Birthplace of Beethoven After arriving in Bonn you might wish to join an optional excursion charting the 2,000-year history of the former capital city, in which Beethoven was born 250 years ago. This tour includes highlights like the Beethoven monument, the Romanesque Minster Cathedral, the University of Bonn and the grand baroque City Hall. The tour takes you to the banks of the Rhine near the Bonn Opera House to see the imposing view of Germany`s oldest nature park, Siebengebirge and seven hills. You'll also visit Beethoven's birthplace, which includes a museum, archives and chamber music hall where you can learn more about the composer's life and work. Andernach Geyser Andernach is home to the world's tallest cold water geyser, which you can see on an optional excursion. This startling natural phenomenon sends jets of water shooting upwards to an astonishing 60 metres in height, with accompanying noisy burps and gurgles. At the Discovery Centre you'll learn about the science behind this geological wonder, and what happens 4,000 metres below the earth's surface to drive and power this natural fountain. A boat will take you to a nature reserve on the Namedyer Werth peninsula to witness the geyser and maybe taste the water for yourself.
