Forum Bonn is a genuinely pioneering construction in Bonn’s Federal Quarter. Its construction in 1991 coincided with the beginning of the former government district’s structural transformation from the seat of the federal government to an important economic engine. Today it offers substantial office space.
Bonn is on the rise. Or rather: it never really went away. People, companies and institutions love the city – as they have from the very beginning. The primary official seat of six of the 14 federal ministries is in Bonn. Twenty federal authorities and 150 international NGOs call Bonn home. And the UN is present here with the headquarters of 25 institutions. To this day, business and world politics meet in this city on the Rhine.
It is certainly no coincidence that major companies choose the federal city for their head offices. The best known of these are the DAX-listed Deutsche Post DHL Group and Deutsche Telekom, as well as Deutsche Postbank. The IT and service industries are particularly well established in Bonn. After all, 17 million potential customers live within a radius of less than 100 kilometres.
Measured by the DAX stock market value of all companies, this city of 335,000 inhabitants is in a sensational third place, a remarkable 12th place in the Smart City Index, and fifth place in the Wirtschaftswoche city ranking for quality of life. But that’s not all: the Aachen, Cologne, Bonn region is considered Europe’s densest research and technology landscape.
Forum Bonn is at the heart of the Bundesviertel. This new economic centre of the federal city is located in the former government district. More than 45,000 people work here – nearly one-fifth of all the jobs in the city. Bonn’s “Central Park” – Freizeitpark Rheinaue – is only a few minutes away by foot. And the connections to public transport and the motorway are simply first-rate.
German reunification in 1990 marked the beginning of a structural change in Bonn. The city mastered the urban planning challenges with flying colours. Forum Bonn is one of the first pioneering constructions in the changing Federal Quarter. This 5-storey office building was constructed in 1991 in an atrium style around an attractive, roofed inner courtyard. The straight lines of the architecture and the fine natural stone façade create an invariably prestigious impression. A glass pyramid complements the structure.
Over a total of 11,939 sqm of space, Forum Bonn’s tenants will find plenty of room for big ideas. The flexible layout grid allows the largely free planning of all areas.
The Forum offers 11,024 sqm of substantial office space on five floors. Thanks to the reinforced concrete frame construction and flexible layout grid, the possibilities for the tenants are nearly limitless. The spacious, roofed atrium provides natural light. The three-storey underground car park encompasses 241 parking spaces on three basement levels. The property offers substantial office space typical of its year of construction.

Over the past few years, a unique city district has been created near Freizeitpark Rheinaue in the former government district between Bonn’s city centre and Bad Godesberg. International corporations, well-established companies, start-ups, scientific institutions, 6 federal ministries, 20 federal authorities, 150 NGOs, the World Conference Center and the United Nations Campus have all chosen to settle here. And more are constantly arriving. Since the Federal Government moved in 1991, an impressive 90 new companies and institutions have set up shop here. A good 20% of all jobs in Bonn – more than 45,000 – are concentrated to the left and right of a 4-kilometre stretch of Friedrich-Ebert-Allee. The connections and local amenities are correspondingly first-rate.
