Bahnhof Rolandseck near Bonn/Remagen - A nice place to stay

One month ago my boyfriend invited me to a nice excursion to a really nice place called "Bahnhof Rolandseck". Bahnhof Rolandseck is now not just a train station but also a museum called Arpmuseum. It's an initiative of Rhineland-Palatinate and a donation of Johannes Arp and his wife Sophie Taeuber-Arp. The train station was center of cultural and social life since 1856. Many well known artist (painters, musicians, poets and more...) stayed there some time and attendet various events. Some of well-known artist are Josephine Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, Friedrich Nietzsche, Johannes Brahms, Clara Schumann, Marcel Marceau and Clown Dimitri.

Today you can visit the museum and have a look at paintings and photos of their events as well as listen to music or just have a walk around the impressive building. Since the museum reopened in 2001 you can attend again various events there. There is also a very beautyful restaurant included and the food is very tasty. You can visit the homepage via Please find attached some photos we made during our visit.
