Path of democracy

The Path of democracy consists of various signposted panels at appropriate locations in the former Government Quarter in Bonn.

The tour begins at the Haus der Geschichte der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. The shorter route includes twelve panels and can be completed in 90 minutes on foot.
Other panels such as the Hofgartenwiese, the site of large-scale demonstrations or the former headquarters of the major parties, are outside the shorter route.
There are a further 40 sites of historical and political significance within and outside the Government Quarter, which are marked with small panels of text.
