The "Pathway of Democracy" will give you an insight into the most important corridors of power of the "Republic of Bonn" between 1948 and 1999. We will start at the so-called Langer Eugen, the second-tallest building in Bonn and the former home of most members of the German Bundestag, the Federal German Parliament. Today it is the headquarters of many of the United Nations organizations located in Bonn. Here we will be given a review of the history of the United Nations in the Federal City of Bonn, covering their approximately 20 secretariats now based here and their areas of work. Afterwords we will appreciate the wonderful panoramic view from the top floor of the Langer Eugen over the UN Campus and the City of Bonn.
Later we will explore the former government district by foot. Amongst others, our mile-stones are the former Federal House; the Plenary Chamber of Parliament in the "old waterworks"; the World Conference Center Bonn; and the former Federal Chancellery, which is today the site of the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development. In addition, we will visit the Palais Schaumburg and the Villa Hammerschmidt, the official residences of the Federal Chancellor and the Federal President. Please note that all these buildings in the second stage of our tour will be visited only from the outside.
Meeting Point: UN Campus, Platz der Vereinten Nationen 1, 53113 Bonn, to be reached from the main station (HBF) of Bonn with the underground lines 16, 63 or 66 to stop Heußallee/Museumsmeile, from there a five-minute walk.
