Experience contemporary history

In 1979, Willy Brandt moved to Unkel and lived in the small town on the Rhine as a citizen among citizens. This is where he wrote his memoirs and looked back on an eventful life. From here, as an elder statesman, he continued to work worldwide for the realization of his political ideals. Willy Brandt died in Unkel on October 8, 1992.

The modernly designed and technically supported exhibition conveys an unforgettable impression of the political work of the politician Brandt and makes a visit to this museum an experience in contemporary history.
