BAHS HOMECOMING REUNION IN B💋NN

Review of a Successful Reunion of Bonn American High School in May 2024

The reunion of classmates from Bonn American High School in May 2024 was a resounding success and will be fondly remembered by all participants. The event kicked off with a warm welcome party at the L’Osteria restaurant, where old friendships were rekindled and new connections were made.

The next day featured a visit to our old and new school. It was moving to walk through the familiar halls and see the changes the school has undergone in recent years. In the evening, we enjoyed a Bavarian Night at Salvator, complete with traditional Bavarian cuisine and live music, creating a festive atmosphere.

The highlight of the following day was a breathtaking Rhine cruise to Drachenfelsen in the Siebengebirge. The view of the Rhine Valley was spectacular, offering plenty of opportunities for memorable photos and relaxed conversations.

On Saturday evening, the Prom Dinner took place, styled as a 1970s-themed party. Live music from the 70s, including hits from Abba, set the stage for a lively dance floor and brought back memories of our school days.

To conclude the reunion, everyone gathered on Sunday morning for a farewell brunch at L’Osteria, the place where it all began. For those who wanted to stay a bit longer, there was the option to take a walk to Poppelsdorf Palace and the Botanical Garden via Poppelsdorfer Allee, allowing for a relaxing end to the weekend.

The feedback on this event was overwhelmingly positive. All participants thanked the organizers warmly and headed home with a backpack full of beautiful memories. After the reunion is before the reunion – and we look forward to what comes next!

Rumor has it that there will be another reunion of the BAHS Alumni and Friends in Washington, D.C. in 2026.

We had so much fun seeing old friends and (even better) meeting new ones! The Bonn tie is a strong one!

We are still savoring the wonderful time we had and the new friendships we made at the reunion. We are deeply grateful to the Hahnes, Maureen, Jürgen, and everyone else who worked so hard to make it such a great experience. It’s one we’ll treasure forever.

My wife Olga and I attended the Bonn reunion in May 2024. Although Olga was initially apprehensive since she didn’t know most attendees, she was inspired by the event and now feels part of the BAHS community. She better appreciates my BAHS connections and stories. I believe non-BAHS spouses who skip these events are missing out, as all who attended, including Olga, were well engaged and enjoyed themselves. Thank you to Hahne’s, Jurgen, Maureen, and others for organizing such a wonderful event. Reconnecting with everyone and making new BAHS connections has inspired us both.

I recently returned from 10 amazing days in Bonn and Dernau, Germany, for the Bonn American High School Reunion. It was a fantastic experience reconnecting with old friends. Highlights included a tour of the school, Bavarian night, a trip to Drachenfels, a mini-Rhine River cruise, and a prom at Godesburg castle. The bond we formed growing up in Bonn is still strong. Though Bonn has changed, it still feels like home.

Jürgen,
Wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed our 24 Reunion. The perfect mix between reminiscing and social time. 
Many of our 76 classmates did not attend, but in the end it was a blessing in disguise. The perfect opportunity to get to know people from other grades, that I did not know well. I had a blast spending time with them. 
We cannot thank the entire organizing committee enough for putting this event together. You guys did a real nice job. Inviting the Bad Godesberg city official  was a nice touch. 
I am looking forward to coming to the next reunion. Hopefully soon.

The BAHS alumni family and friends thrive on your active engagement in social media and events like this. Your presence and involvement make all the difference.

We will miss you and look forward to seeing you again in Bonn soon.

What an incredible reunion we had here in Bonn in 2024! It was such a joy to see all the familiar faces and relive our shared memories. From an ABBA-themed dinner and a Bavarian night to tours of our old school and the surrounding area, visits to the American church and American Embassy Club, a trip to Drachenfels, a Rhine river cruise, and a 70s-themed Prom Night at The Godesburg – each event was truly special.

A heartfelt thank you to each one of you who made this weekend so unforgettable. Special thanks to the Hahne brothers – Chris, Hans, and Wolfgang – for their dedication and hard work in making it all possible.

Here’s to being like the Rolling Stones, and keeping the tradition alive! Until next time! 😊🇩🇪🇺🇸

Meet your Classmates!

Many years have past since we graduated, so you can bet we don’t look the same as we did back in high school. Some of us have more pounds, or less hair, and some actually look better than they did at BAHS. This page will remind everyone of what we looked like way back when and the way we look now, as well as an update of where we are at in life. Hopefully this page will allow everyone to catch up.
