Really enjoyed the farmer’s market in this area - great food and fruits around here. While you’re at it grab some fresh gelato.

It's a nice looking building in a big town square but it's nothing spectacular. Worth looking at for a minute or two before moving on. There are far better places in the Rhine valley to spend your time.

On one side of Bonn's market Square the Rathaus dominates. It is a beautiful white building. Definitely worth a photo stop in the square. I visited late Sunday afternoon while a tenor was singing in the square providing some atmosphere.

The town hall building is quite beautiful with white and golden design. We didn't go inside the town hall, but walked around the market square by it. There were some nice cafes in the square area, and a statue of Beethoven.
