Sankt Augustin is a city in North Rhine-Westphalia.
Getting to Sankt Augustin is quite easy, as its infrastructure of traffic is excellent.
Sankt Augustin is connected to Siegburg and Bonn by the tram 66, which runs each 10 minutes, except in the early morning, late evening or the weekend.
To visit the city centre use the exits "Kloster" or "Markt". From Cologne you must travel to Siegburg or Bonn by regional trains, e.g. the S 12 to Hennef or Au up to Siegburg. From Cologne's airport you use the S 13 up to "Spich" and change in the S 12 (be aware of long waiting times in the evening or morning!)
Going to Sankt Augustin by car is even easier than by train. You will find it at the motorway A 3 at the connection "Bonn / Siegburg" to the A 560. Here you should change to the motorway 560 and choose the exit you want, as the motorway passes Sankt Augustin in the north.
From Bonn you may use the B 56. Just travel over the Kenedy-Bridge and follow the road.
And of course you can reach Sankt Augustin from all the other surrunding towns, too.
Sankt Augustin can be reached by bus from all surrounding towns and cities. Just go to the main bus stop of your destination town and have a look on the timetable of the busses. For example you can go by the bus 508 from Troisdorf, by the line 529 from Hennef and by the line 512 from Königswinter-Ittenbach.
Either you reach the Cologne-Bonn-Airport and go on by train or you fly to Hangelar's "airport".
Sankt Augustin consists of eight parts, which have once been independent villages, so that you'll find one centre in each part of Sankt Augustin, but no real city centre. The eight are Meindorf, Menden, Mülldorf, Niederpleis and Buisdorf in the north, Ort in the centre and Hangelar and Birlinghoven in the south.
- Siegaue the Siegaue follows the river Sieg north of the town. Here you can go by bike or just have a walk.
- Schloß Birlinghoven the castle in Birlinghoven's forest is a nice one. It today belongs to the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft for aritmethics, so you normally just can see it from outside. But if you have the chance to get in it, do it!
