UN Bonn at a glance
UN Bonn with about 20 organizations and almost 1,000 staff members, is here to help governments and peoples find answers and ways for a sustainable future on this planet.
The UN Campus is formed by the Langer Eugen (named after the former Bundestag President Eugen Gerstenmaier) and Altes Abgeordnetenhochhaus, together with Haus Carstanjen. These premises played an important part in shaping Germany’s new postwar democracy and were made available to the United Nations after refurbishment.
