Directly following sessions on the second day, join fellow conference delegates for this complimentary 2 hour walking tour, The Path of Democracy. The tour will take participants through the federal government district in Bonn. 20 large illustrated panels recall Germany's democratic history whilst also highlighting the structural change of the past few years. The stops en route provide information about important places where policy decisions were taken in the former government district. You will discover, among other things, the Museum Koenig, where the Parliamentary Council met, the former lecture hall of the Pedagogic Academy, where the Basic Law was debated and adopted, the official seats of the Federal Presidents and the Federal Chancellors and also see where the German Bundestag convened.
