Germany is thankfully not divided anymore since almost twenty years back.
Bonn was a poor choice for a capital anyway...
Even though it´s "richer" than Berlin.
Thank God for the fall of the wall!

Bonn (Nordrhein-Westfalen: Kurfürstliches Schloss

Bonn was the main residence of the prince bishops of Cologne
The castle was built from 1697 -1705 by Enrico Zuccalli, the bavarian court architect, around a quadrangle court.
1715-23 remodelled Robert de Cotte, the great french architect, the inner decoration, which was destroyed by fire 1777.
One half of the castle was rebuild and newly decorated in Louis XVI. style.
This was destroyed by bombing 1944.
Today, all four wings are rebuilt, but the inner architecture of the castle, now university, is modern.
Only the chapel had benn reconstructed in early classicism.

The garden front:

1751-57 added prince bishop Clemens August the long rhine wing, designed by his architect Michel Leveilly, a disciple of Robert de Cotte.
Centre of the new wing is St. Michael's gate.

Bonn (Nordrhein-Westfalen): Rathaus

Perhaps the most beautiful building by Michel Leveilly is the Bonn town hall, 1737-38.

Bonn (Nordrhein-Westfalen: Poppelsdorfer Schloss

Ca. 3 km away from the main residence is standing the Poppelsdorf Castle, 1715-1740 by Robert de Cotte and Balthasar Neumann, a summer residence, 1944 destroyed too, with the rare example of a round inner court.

Here an illustration from 1792:

Brühl (Nordrhein-Westfalen): Schloss Augustusburg

The main summer residence of the prince bishops of Cologne was not Poppelsdorf Castle, but Augustusburg Castle near Bonn.
One of the most exuberantly decorated castles of Germany with a formidable staircase of Balthasar Neumann, which was for decades the "official" reception room of our federal government during State receptions.

Prince bishop Clemens August ordered Johann Conrad Schlaun to build the castle.
The work began 1725.
1728 Francois Cuvilliés, the bavarian court architect, took over the building site, followed by Balthasar Neumann,1740-46 and Michel Leveilly 1746-61.
Although heavily damaged during WW II., the castle had been perfectly restored for the represantative purposes of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Amazing stuff!



I was always wondering why these castles were part of the UNESCO heritage.
Now I finally know. Those baroque interiors are astonishing! The staircase definitely is a European masterpiece.

Halbe (Brandenburg): Luftschiffhalle Aerium

Not beautiful, but really huge: the Aerium near Berlin, 360 m long, 210 m wide, 107 m high, built 1998-2000.
A company wanted to develop and build here giant airships, but failed.
Therefore, the hall shelters now a tropical recreational paradise.
