A warm welcome to BONNEXPAT. We know that settling in a new country means coping with a different language and culture. There are people from about 180 nations living in Bonn and we would like to support you when living abroad here in Bonn by creating opportunities to meet other people and to learn more about the cultural life in Bonn and its region. Activities like the BONNEXPAT evening are designed to strengthen the ties between people from all over the world living away from home through personal networking in an informal atmosphere.
