How could a town in Western Germany, once so small, become the capital of the Federation for 40 years? And why does it still maintain its political importance after the shift of power back towards Berlin? Our local tour guide will answer all your questions during the "Politics in Bonn Tour". On this tour we will follow the footsteps of German politicians in the former government district and find out how they shaped the modern German state out of the ruins of World War II. The history of how Bonn shifted from a government city towards the seat of the UN and international companies is going to be told with many anecdotes. This is a walking tour which you are not going to forget. 

• Duration: 2 hours 

• Price: On request (please tell us the number of participants) 

• What you will see: Museum König as the founding place of the German constitution, former Bundeskanzleramt, Palais Schaumburg, Villa Hammerschmidt, both parliament chambers and the water plant where the decision to move back Berlin was taken
