Foundation of the Federal Chancellor Adenauer House

In the middle of picturesque grounds lies Konrad Adenauer’s residence preserved in original condition. Guided tours give a lively impression of the lifestyle of the first post-war German Chancellor and familiarise the visitor with his political thought.

Alongside that, the permanent exhibit in the modern foundation building provides concrete information, through a multitude of photographs, documents and mementos, about Adenauer’s long life and his influence during four epochs of German history.

Residence and permanent exhibit provide a trip through time into the events of German and European history in the 19th and 20th centuries. They allow you to discover the private man Konrad Adenauer as well as the politician and statesman: the husband and father of a family, the friend of gardens and lover of roses, the tinkerer and inventor, the admirer of religious art and classical music, the enthusiastic reader of detective stories and passionate boccie player – and much more ...
