Dear All,


This year’s BonnExpat summer event will shed light on the dramatic changes that took place in Europe around 1800, mirrored by Germany’s most famous poet and writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe. And naturally – weather permitting – we’ll end with the traditional reception in the beautiful roof top garden.

Johann Wolfgang Goethe was a superstar in his time and until today he is one of the most prominent Germans in history. The first major Goethe exhibition in 25 years sheds light on his life, the dawn of our modern world and on the history of the reception of his singular work. Theatre, film and music play an important role alongside paintings, sculptures and photography. Let’s get immersed!


And of course we will end the day with a drink in the beautiful rooftop garden. Goethe devoted many hours to create his gardens making them both pleasing as well as beneficial for his studies.


BONNEXPAT is offering a guided tour through this extraordinary exhibition including an exclusive reception on the museum’s rooftop – and the opportunity to return to earth by the “Bonn Slide”!
