  • From the western parts of Cologne (Aachen, etc.), the A555 is recommended, from the Bonn-Nord interchange, take the A565 toward Koblenz.

From the southwest

  • From Koblenz on the A61 to the Meckenheim interchange, then the A565 to Bonn.

From the south - past the Rhine (only for experts, map highly recommended)

  • On the right bank of the Rhine
    • On the B42 (also a kind of highway) and over the Südbrücke (A562), then you are on the B9 (Adenauerallee) in northern direction.
  • On the left bank of the Rhine
    • Approach already via the B9. Then, at the (former) Federal Chancellery, turn left onto the Reuterbrücke (railroad crossing), and continue to follow the Reuterstraße until the point where it becomes the A565 at the corner of the Botanical Garden... there, where the Reuterstraße turns left, drive straight ahead...
