Followed by a summer buffet on the beautiful garden terrace or in the exclusive dining room of the villa, depending on the weather.

Food and drink including champagne reception, table drinks (wine, beer, water, coffee), gin cocktails and all starters, main courses and desserts are included in the participation fee of 70 euros for DC members (and life partners) and 90 euros for guests (until 10 p.m.). For those who want to linger longer, the bar is open on their own account.

Despite its city center location, Villa Bonn has plenty of parking spaces (free of charge). For "latecomers" who cannot find a parking space there, the Palmengarten parking garage is in the immediate vicinity.
