Here are a few tips to help you have the most magical experience of Bonn’s cherry blossom season:
Go with your partner. The street is really romantic, and you’ll probably get a photo worth framing.
Volunteer to take pictures of other people, and then you can ask them to take a picture of you too.
The best view is from the middle of the street, but be careful and stay on the lookout for passing vehicles.
If you go at around 7 PM, you’ll catch the cherry blossoms in the magical blue hour, when the sky is drenched in indigo.
Visit during the afternoon on a sunny day (check the weather forecast beforehand) for the brightest and most colourful pictures.
Plan your outfit beforehand. Pastel hues go well with the cherry blossoms. Alternatively, you could wear blue for a pop of contrast.
Be respectful of other visitors, and don’t push or shove. The cherry blossoms are there for everyone to enjoy!
How long do cherry blossoms last?
Unfortunately, cherry blossoms have a short lifespan. The week before full bloom, you will see the buds opening up mid-way. That can be beautiful too. At full bloom, the blossoms are a party of pink! This is the best time to see the cherry blossoms and usually lasts a week. After that, the blossoms begin to fall off, but seeing the ground carpeted in fallen flowers isn’t without its own poignant charm. Overall, you usually have two-three weeks to enjoy the cherry blossom season.
