fireworks in Rheinaue - Bonn Beuel at worker's day (1st May)


The first Saturday of May is always special, featuring Rhein in Flammen in Bonn und am Siebengebirge at one of the most beautiful sections of the Rhine. Red Bengalese fires light up the banks of the river and the sights of Linz, Erpel, Remagen, Unkel, Rheinbreitbach, Bad Honnef, Konigswinter and Bonn. A stately fleet of 60 illuminated vessels goes in convoy from Linz to Bonn, and fireworks in different cities fascinate audiences on board and ashore. At the end, a fireworks display culminates the procession in Bonn's Rheinaue, and 60 fire pictures explode in the night sky accompanied by the symphonic wind players of the Beethoven Orchestra.
