Bonn - German Society of Cell Biology meeting

On 30.03 we (our workgroup) went to Bonn to visit the German Society of Cell Biology Meeting. After a smooth 5h drive we checked into Mercedes Hotel, very near the Bonn University.
Right at the beginning Bonn surprised me in a very positive way. The University is situated within an old palace with a nice park in front.  The old city center is small, but charming. Especially the churches, above all the Münster Basilica.
After listening some interesting talks at the meeting we enjoyed the city at the evenings.
On Saturday morning we appreciated the spring weather to take a walk along the Rhine-promenade towards the former governments quarter. Walking along a river front with superb weather and spotting some great architecture was quite a good morning and made us fit to carefully listen the last talks before heading home. On the way home we stopped at the home of our boss and met his adorable wife and son, who provided us an overwhelming dinner :D
