The Physikzentrum Bad Honnef (PBH) is run by the German Physical Society and supported by the University of Bonn and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The stately mansion housing is surrounded by a park at the foot of the Siebengebirge ("the Seven Hills") on the right bank of the river Rhine. In the immediate neighborhood an extensive net of hiking-paths in Germany's oldest nature preserve invites pleasant short or long walks. Local public transport offers convenient access to the nearby cities of Bonn (15 km) and Cologne (40 km) with many cultural and scientific attractions. Due to its central location PBH is easy to reach from all countries.
Since 1976 the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef serves as the main meeting point of the German Physical Society (DPG). It offers a secluded setting for research conferences, seminars, and workshops, and has proven to be especially stimulating for fruitful discussions.
