In Irmintrudisstraße there are well-kept and modernized apartment buildings that date back to 1962. The floors of the cozy apartments are covered with parquet, PVC was used in the kitchens and hallways. The bathrooms are brightly tiled, equipped with a tub/shower and have either a window or, alternatively, electric ventilation.
In Bonn-Castell you will find a lot of residential buildings, office and administration buildings, several institutes of the University of Bonn, as well as numerous federal authorities and churches worth seeing, such as the Catholic parish church of St. Joseph from 1931, a brick building in the Bauhaus style by the Cologne architects Boell and Neuhaus. In summer, the Römerbad outdoor pool, located directly on the banks of the Rhine, attracts numerous visitors. In Bonn-Castell, urban life takes place in the immediate vicinity of the Rhine, ideal for people of all ages who appreciate short distances but are not necessarily fanatics of tranquillity.
The city center can be reached in a few minutes on foot or quite comfortably by bike. The promenade running along the Rhine with footpaths and cycle paths offers ample opportunity for strolling and doing sports. The many green areas invite you to linger and relax. Kölnstraße runs along the border to Nordstadt and offers good shopping opportunities for everyday needs with its shops.
