Nordend and Bornheim

Nordend was the center of antigovernment student demonstrations in the 1960s and 1970s—it still retains a little shabby, bohemian flavor. For its part, Bornheim holds on to some of the liveliness it had as the city’s red-light district a century ago. Both have some pleasant, small shops and restaurants.
