UN Campus

Bonn has managed to shape a new profile for itself as the German City of the United Nations and a centre of international dialogue on key issues of the future. The Bonn UN Campus is a visible symbol of this development.

Platz der Vereinten Nationen 1, 53113 Bonn

Since July 1996 Bonn can call itself United Nations City. Ten years later, in July 2006, Federal Chancellor Angela Merkel was able to hand over the new United Nations headquarters in Bonn to the then UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. The Federal Government had invested 55 million euros in the conversion of the former high-rise building of the German parliament, also known as the "Langer Eugen". Almost all Bonn-based UN organizations are assembled under its roof.

In October 2012, another complex of buildings was handed over to the United Nations in the form of the old parliament building, in which the employees of the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat are working now. In order to meet the growing space requirements of the United Nations in Bonn, a further building is currently under construction on the UN Campus.

Today, the UN Campus in Bonn offers the United Nations ideal working conditions and a synergetic environment with many national contacts and a variety of internationally active local partners.
