Germany View over Bonn from Ölberg, Siebengebirge

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The Ölberg in the Siebengebirge offers an amazing view over the Rhineland towards Bonn, which is visible in the background with that little S-curve of the Rhine near the Posttower. This spot also offers a really nice view towards the Drachenfels with a carpet of woods in the foreground.

Photography Tips

Don't forget your tripod and ND-filters. If you use the exact same spot like I did you also have to pay attention on placing your tripod very accurat, because there is not a lot of space between those rocks.
A wide angle lens is also nice to have in that situation to get the rocks in the foreground as an additional nice element into your photo. You should also pay attention on framing your photo in a way where you can see the Rhine in the background, because this adds a really nice detail/eyecatcher.

Travel Information

There is a parking space in Ittenbach you can use for free after 8pm or for a small amount of money. The walk up to the top of the mountain (if you can call it that way...) takes you about 20 minutes or at least 15 minutes if you take the short way straight through the woods, which is a little bit more exhausting, but time saving if you are late for a sunset shot.

Dein Foto ist schön, besser als ich den Sonnenuntergang empfunden hatte :-) Ich werde nächsten Donnerstag wieder im Siebengbebirge sein, mal sehen, was dann los ist.
