To the south is Haus der Geschichte with post-WWII history exhibits. Bonn has a healthy economy and lively urban vibe. For visitors, the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven has plenty of note, not least the great composer's birth house, a string of top-rated museums, a lovely riverside setting and the nostalgic flair of the old government quarter. There is plenty of history and interesting sights here, and these hostels make a great base for exploring the area.
