Open and light-flooded architecture, clear and unpretentious lines: In addition to the buildings of prominent architects, you will also see a charming, period-typical pavilion on this tour.
From 1967 onwards, the Federal Press Conference began inviting politicians and other prominent individuals on the political scene to a dedicated room at the Tulpenfeld office complex.
Politicians, journalists and visitors met at the pavilion-style kiosk from 1957 to 1999. After the government’s move to Berlin, the inconspicuous little building became the "symbol of the Bonn Republic".
In 1969, members of the Bundestag moved into an office building that at the time was planned as the tallest structure in the Bonn-Godesberg "metropolitan area". It is today the Bonn headquarters of the UN.
The Bundesrat (Upper House of Parliament) met in the north wing of the Bundeshaus from 1949 to 2000. The German Constitution, or Basic Law, was signed in the building, too.
