Bonn is a city with history. Romans and Germanic tribes built their first settlements here as early as 2,000 years ago. The metropolis in North Rhine-Westphalia is thus one of the oldest cities in Germany. In 1770 Ludwig van Beethoven saw the light of day here. Numerous monuments still commemorate the famous composer. One of the crowd-pullers is Beethoven's birthplace, which houses the largest Beethoven collection in the world.
As the former federal capital, Bonn also impresses with the old parliament and government district. Discover the Bundesrat, where the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany was drafted starting in 1948. Stroll through the gardens of Villa Hammerschmidt, which still serves as the second official residence of the Federal President. Or take a look at the former Federal Chancellery or the listed Palais Schaumburg, the Chancellor's official residence in Bonn.
Those who want to see modern artworks will also get their money's worth in Bonn. Thanks to the concept adopted in 1989 on the artistic design of public space, numerous works are freely accessible. The steel sculpture "Da Musica IV" by Eduardo Chillida in front of Bonn Cathedral as well as the sculptures "Hommage to Beethoven" in the Stadtgarten and the "Mercurius" at the Stadttower are just a few of them.
