Full description
Let your enthusiastic guide introduce their hometown of Bonn and experience the city on an extraordinary tour through the lens of a local. With Rhenish songs and interesting stories from Bonn’s two parallel worlds of politics and Karneval, you will be transported back in time between 1949 and 1990.

At that time, Bonn was the provisional capital of the Federal Republic of Germany. Chancellors, diplomats and city soldiers: this remarkable combination of world politics, tradition, and small town idyll existed only here at that time. If Berlin was the center of the Cold War, then Bonn was the peace pipe of the Federal Republic. Even North German chancellors and American presidents were moved to sway and bob.

This tour takes you to important places of the Bonn Republic. From where world history was written, where heads of state celebrated their parties, and where the small town on the Rhine became the hub of international politics. Except of course from Weiberfastnacht to Ash Wednesday, because during that time of the year everyone was really just trying to find a Karneval club. While exploring Bonn amuse in hit songs of the time presented live by your uninhibited, but professional tour guide.
