History of the Plenary Building

In May 1949, Bonn is designated as provisional seat of the federal bodies. The Bundestag as the federal parliament convenes at the Pedagogical Academy.

In late 1949 Bonn is declared the capital of the Federal Republic of Germany, and up until the 1980s the parlia­mentarians use the extension to the Academy’s former gym­nasium as their meeting venue.

In 1987, after many years of debate and planning, the old plenary hall is demolished. A new plenary hall is built according to the plans of architect Günter Behnisch.

The construction works for the new plenary hall start in 1988; its inauguration takes place in 1992. During the construction phase the parliamentarians meet at the nearby waterworks.

Ever since fall of 1999 the former plenary hall is part of the WorldCCBonn and can be rented for events of any kind.
