Beryl Kornhill likes nature -- and the city

Beryl Kornhill is a writer from Stockholm, Sweden.

My favorite destination in Germany: Bonn and the surrounding area.

My preferred accommodation: Staying with friends.

A perfect day in Bonn: A day where I have the choice between pure nature and the big city. Bonn is the perfect place for this. I can take a tour of Bonn or Cologne, or go hiking in the Siebengebirge or the Eifel mountains.

I tend to spend my money on: Food, books.

My Tip: The Maria Laach Benedictine Abbey in the Vulkaneifel region. Culture and nature come together wonderfully here. Visitors should take a look at the fantastic Romanesque church and go for an eight-kilometer hike around Laacher Lake. At one point, you can see traces of the volcanic activity that formed the lake 10,000 years ago -- that is, bubbles that rise out of the bottom of the lake.

Where I want to visit next: The Eifel region by bike.

What I like best about Germany: The diversity of culture and nature.
