City Tour: “Bonn Südstadt” – the city’s most beautiful residential area

The most beautiful residential quarter of Bonn was built between 1850 and 1910. The Gründerzeit district had survived the World War nearly unscathed. The post-war period, until the introduction of the Cultural Heritage Law, was less fortunate. Nevertheless, the Südstadt remained a self-contained area of Gründerzeit architecture.

The tour also includes urban planning and traffic-related issues, as well as the history of the residents of the district. Among the places shown are Schinkel’s University Observatory and the villa of the Jewish geographer Philippson.
