Bonn has gained an international reputation as a location for debating - and increasingly for learning - about sustainable development worldwide. Some aspects of this important work are introduced in a film.
Over the past years, Bonn has developed into a major conference venue. Modern congress facilities, competent service providers and well-managed hotels testify to high competence in congress organisation.
In the last 15-20 years, Bonn has successfully engineered a transition from mainly governmental functions to an internationally competitive business structure. In the PDF-brochure 'Economic Profile 2012' you will find more information about the 'Business Location Bonn'.
The fact that Bonn has an important university is evident from the city skyline, which is dominated by the main building of the Alma Mater, founded in 1818.
200 years ago already, in Bonn organised striving for knowledge and discovery took place: first at the Prince Elector’s Academy of Science and then at the ‚Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität’.
Bonn has managed to shape for itself a new profile as the German City of the United Nations. The Bonn UN Campus is the visible symbol. Since July 1996, Bonn is entitled to call itself a UN City.
