Explore the former capital of Germany: Bonn
In 1989, during the fall of the Berlin Wall, Bonn celebrated a big anniversary. This was the city's 2,000th birthday, where a Roman camp was already in pre-Christian times. Bonn gained even more importance when it later became the residence of the archbishops of Cologne. When did Bonn become the former capital of Germany? And in 1949 Bonn finally even became the capital of Germany before the federal politicians returned to Berlin in the course of reunification. Nevertheless, there are still parts of federal ministries and a number of supreme federal authorities in Bonn's city centre and the surrounding area. Accordingly, Bonn today bears the unique title of a "Federal City", unique in Germany. Of course, many buildings have survived from the times when the fortunes of West Germany were steered from here. This applies both to the former seat of the German Parlament (Bundestag) and to the former Federal Chancellery.
Stroll through the beautiful streets of Bonn
The city centre of Bonn is also worth a stroll. A good starting point for this is the historical marketplace of Bonn, where many traders still offer their groceries and other offers for sale and where the car can be conveniently parked in the parking garage. The architectural centrepiece of the market square is the Old Town Hall, which was built between 1737 and 1738 in the rococo style and where one can still marry today in historical rooms. The hired car can initially remain in the multi-storey car park, as a number of other attractions are within walking distance.
Bonn is well connected by motorway to other cities in Germany. Therefor you can reach the city easily with your hired car. There are also a number of important museums in Bonn. The most important museum is still relatively young. It was founded in 1994 by the then Chancellor Helmut Kohl and is dedicated to the history of the Federal Republic of Germany since 1945 as a "House of History". 7,000 exhibits and 150 media stations on 4,000 square metres illustrate the development of Germany after the end of the Second World War. Among the exhibits there are the original Mercedes limousine jused by the German chancellor, Willy Brandt's Nobel Prize certificate and the sneakers that Joschka Fischer wore when he was sworn in as the Minister of the environmental affairs for the first time.
