1. Leserpark

Show sight on map

The small readers' park in the Bonn district of Plittersdorf in Bad Godesberg covers an area of around 40,000 square metres along the Rhine between the Von-Sandt-Ufer and the new development Am Büchel. In the north of the forest park lies the historic Villa Cahn, whose owner at the turn of the 20th century, the Leser family, gave its name to the park. Originally, the park was considerably more extensive to the west, it was greatly reduced in the 1980s by the development of apartment buildings on today's street Am Büchel. Already at the beginning of the 20th century, the Godesberg municipal administration had tried to open up the park for development towards the Rhine. At that time, however, the legally experienced Higher Regional Court Councillor Wilhelm Leser was able to prevent the development plans.
