Bonn is a city of roughly 310,000 inhabitants and is located in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It lies south of Cologne, on the Rhine River.
Founded as a Roman settlement, Bonn has been known more famously in recent memory as the birthplace of composer Ludwig van Beethoven and as the capital of West Germany from 1949-1990. It was the main seat of the German federal government until 1999. This is a collection of DW's latest content on the Federal City of Bonn.

COVID-19 cases are rising as many Germans are going abroad for vacation. Health Minister Jens Spahn wants mandatory testing for when they come back. Voluntary testing is already underway, such as at Cologne-Bonn Airport.
