UN campus with a view of the Rhine
The view from the river promenade up the Rhine shows the classic Bonner panorama: on the left the Siebengebirge with the Petersberg, on the right the deputy house of the Bonner Republik, the long Eugene, which stands apart from the massive Posttower rather than the short Eugene, now part of the UN Campus, which was designated as extraterritorial territory.
The campus, center of the United Nations Organizations in Bonn, was founded on 11. July 2006 was inaugurated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel and then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. 2013, the southern part of the Bundeshaus at the United Nations, was added to the campus in July and is currently being expanded.
International conferences in Bonn
Since Bonn is the seat of the UN Climate Secretariat, last May, three bodies of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) met with around 4000 participants, and the International Bureau of the World Biodiversity Council, IPBES, also based in Bonn, directed 28. and 29. January, here the 4. National IPBES Forum.
In addition, numerous other national and international conferences are held regularly in Bonn, not only on sustainability and climate protection. This shows the international importance Bonn still has for meetings and conferences today - and how many different options of exciting, historic locations.
Meetings in the Beethoven House
One of the most famous of these is surely the birthplace of the composer Ludwig van Beethoven in Bonn's inner city. The Beethoven-Haus association houses here the world's largest Beethoven collection with 17.000 original documents from Beethoven's Bonner and Viennese period, as well as the Japanese emperor. What is exciting is that parts of the house can also be rented for special events:
There is, for example, the chamber music hall for up to 200 persons, which can be booked for concerts or lectures. The German post office recently had an event. For small presentations up to 40 persons the small lecture hall is available. Four house pianists can be booked for the musical accompaniment on the prepared wings, but companies can also bring their own pianists, who play on one of the waiting wings.
For the get-together there is in the small garden a terrace with Sonnensegelgel. You can also eat well near the Beethoven-Haus: the Brauhaus Bönnsch offers excellent traditional Rhenish cuisine at moderate prices.
If you want to see the place where Beethoven 1792 played before Joseph Haydn and finally became his masterclass, and where a performance of Mozart's Magic Flute took place in the year 1793, he must go to Bad Godesberg in the south of the city. The Redoute, built under Kurfürst Max Franz 1790-92, can now be booked for meetings, conferences and seminars.
There are a total of seven rooms from the 200 m2 large Beethoven room for up to 300 persons up to the 25 m2 large pink salon for up to 30 persons as well as an 165 m2 large terrace. For events in a special ambience is the cozy Redoute, originally the gardener's house.
Opposite the Bonn Opera, also directly on the Rhine, the Hilton is the only major congress hotel in the city center: A classic 4 star hotel with excellent service: The opening hours of the pool and fitness room are on Sundays from 5.30 on Business The very good breakfast also offers a rich selection of fresh, wholesome food - and the dinner is superb too.
The Hilton 252 offers its guests typically furnished rooms and suites, some with direct views of the Rhine. In the group area, room prices range between € 99,00 (quiet weekend) and € 299,00 (exhibition time) in a single room including breakfast.
Meetings and cuisine at the Hilton
For meetings are 14 rooms, also partly directly overlooking the Rhine, for 12 to a maximum of 300 people available, there is also a large terrace overlooking the Rhine.
The standard packages for meeting guests from 10 persons include a full day stay at € 69,00 per person including room rental, standard equipment (beamer, screen, flipchart), two coffee breaks including snacks, lunch buffet or menu, soft drinks in the meeting room and lunch. For a half-day stay with only one coffee break € 59,00 will be charged. Furthermore, promotional prices or even individual packages can be offered, but always depends on request volume and period.
Highly recommended is the restaurant The Grill, which serves classics of international cuisine in a very nice ambience with a view of the Rhine. But also lovers of regional and German dishes get their money's worth in the Hilton restaurant.
