Would you like to spend a nice afternoon walking along a cozy tunnel of flowers? Or, have you ever experienced a rain of petals?
These are some of the idyllic descriptions that may come to your mind when you witness the blooming of the Cherry blossom along the Breite Strasse and the Heerstrasse streets at the "Altstadt" (Old Town) in the city of Bonn, Germany.
Every year during the beginning of Spring, and only for15 days (usually between the end of March and the beginning of April), this area of the old town at Bonn is decorated by the stunning colours of the Cherry trees.
The tops of the trees form tunnels of flowers and provide a refreshing shadow to take relaxing walks by the streets of the Altstadt (Old Town)
You will be able to sense impressive contrasts between the usual grey and beige colours of the old town and the bright purple and pink colours of the flowers.
And by the end of the blooming season you might need to take an umbrella with you because petals start to "rain" when they fall from the trees completely covering the street and the parked cars changing their colours!
The streets of the Altstadt take a different lifestyle as many temporary little street businesses install on the sidewalks to offer all kinds of curiosities to pedestrians passing by.
This is a very popular and visited urban-natural event and if you like crowds you will prefer visiting the blooming of the Cherry Blossom during weekends after 12h00 or during weekdays from 17h00 and later.
But if you are the kind of persons that enjoy having full space and quite walks, then it is better to visit Bonn's Altstadt during weekdays, anytime from the morning until around 17h00.
During the blooming of the Cherry Blossom you will find all kinds of delicious candies and food along the streets, for kids as well as for adults.
People enjoy the sensation of being covered by a roof of petals with psychedelic colours ranging from clear pink to deep purple, forming real tunnels of flowers which contrast with the intense green of the trees at the end of the Breite Strasse street.
Along the visit kids will also find all kinds of surprises that will make their experience a memorable one.
Of course, if you enjoy photography, this is one of the most inspiring moments to feed in your inner artist!
Local entrepreneurs like beer bars, libraries, kiosks, restaurants, hairs saloons, tattoo shops and cafes decorate their storefronts with all sorts of attractive items during the blooming season adding up to the joyful mood!
Along the streets of the Altsatd you will also find diverse types of restaurants and cafeterias where you will enjoy the most delicious varieties from cakes and sandwiches to tapas and fish. It is a good moment to stop and relax under the shadow of the Cherry trees!
In summary, visiting the streets of the Altsadt during this season of the year is just a great idea to spend a cozy afternoon in an environment of celebration and urban recreation!
