Bonn is situated on the Rhine river in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The city was the capital of West Germany untill the government moved to Berlin after the re-unification of the German States. The city has a splendid setting along the Rhine and is home to some of Germany´s largest companies. Bonn has wonderful historic buildings, museums and galleries. In the Bonngasse near the market place stands Beethoven House, the birthplace of Ludwig von Beethoven, and on the Münsterplatz stands the Bonn Minster, one of the oldest churches in Germany. Some ministries have remained in Bonn and the city has received the title Federal City. Bonn is the second unofficial capital of Germany.
