Godesburg is one of the medieval castles in the Rheine valley. It is located in the suburbs of Bonn on top of a high hill. This strong citadel was founded in the beginning of the 13th century by the Cologne archbishop Dietrich I. However after over three hundred years the fortress fell, only a 30-metres-high donjon survived. The castle lay in ruins up until the middle of the 20th century when one of the German architects suggested his version of its restoration.
People come here to see breathtaking views that open from the upper floors of the tower. Here you will also find one of the best restaurants in Bonn, a cozy hotel, a wine cellar and a small museum.
