Photographer's Note

Again and again I come back to Bonn, my favorite city ...

Here I show you the facade of the old Bonn town hall - seen from the lively market place. It was built in 1737/38 by Michel Leveilly, the master builder of the elector and archbishop of Cologne Clemens-August. His one-family-house is only some streets away. I think you should know the complete name of this distinguished personality: Clemens August I. Ferdinand Maria Hyazinth of Bavaria.

In the 42 years lasting history of Bonn as the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany, many prominent politicians from all over the world took a speech at the outside staircase in front of the main entrance, such as for example De Gaulle, Kennedy, Queen Elizabeth, Gorbatschow and many many others.
Today this wonderful building is used for representative events and festivities.

Here you can see a very special view of the town hall.

In the workshop you can see the town hall from another angle.

Using the map view function at the left you can zoom in (please click at "satellite" and several times at +) exactly to the city hall with the market place. South of it you can see the huge castle of the archbishop and elector Clemens-August with the park.
