A short history of Bonn

Bonn is one of the oldest cities in Germany - in 1989 the city celebrated its two thousandth birthday. After the first Roman settlements, Bonn had to endure a lot during the raids of the Vikings - about 800 times the city should have been strangled. In 1243, Bonn received full city rights and, in addition, the city became the residence of the Electors of Cologne during the thirteenth century. As a result, splendid palaces were built in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, but this baroque period ended in 1794 with the occupation of the city by French troops.
