Bonn, Germany
About Bonn
The Program will take place in Bonn at Akademie für Internationale Bildung (AIB), our host institution.  Bonn is virtually synonymous for modern Germany and German lifestyle.  Set in the beautiful Rhine valley between the mountain ranges of the Siebengebirge and the Eifel, Bonn enjoys a rich heritage from its 2,000-year history.  Baroque royal seat of the former princes elector, site of a major university and the birthplace of Beethoven—Bonn is naturally committed to the arts.  Visitors are often pleasantly surprised by the contrasts between magnificent historical buildings, small village charm, cosmopolitan urban life and high-quality cultural attractions.
