The Chancellor's bungalow is the Federal Chancellor's former residence and reception building. It was designed in 1963 by the well-known architect Sep Ruf and was available to all the heads of Government as their place of residence and for official purposes from 1964 until 1999.

In 2001 the Wüstenrot Stiftung included the building in its monuments scheme and began extensive refurbishment and renovation in 2006. There was a celebration to reopen the Bungalow in 2009.

The Haus der Geschichte offers guided tours through the Chancellor's bungalow and provides an insight into the official and private rooms. An exhibition gives information about the Federal Chancellor and the use of the building.


Individual visitors can view the Chancellor's bungalow on Sundays at 2 pm and 3 pm.
