Official residence of the Federal Chancellor
Palais Schaumburg was built in the middle of the 19th century. At the beginning of the 20th century Victoria, the sister of Kaiser Wilhelm II., lived there. She was married to Prinz zu Schaumburg-Lippe. The house became the social focal point of the city for several years through Victoria.
After the founding of the Federal Republic, Palais Schaumburg was converted by the architect Hans Schwippert and became the official residence of the Federal Chancellor. It is now used as the Federal Chancellor's official residence in Bonn. The Palais lies in extensive grounds with many ancient trees.
Please note: The German government has been refurbishing Palais Schaumburg since August 1, 2013. Guided tours will then probably not be possible until the end of 2022.
