Description    Deutsch  ·  English

There are security cameras in the area but they are pointed at the fence, not the cache. In the unlikely event you are approached by UN security guards, just explain to them what you are doing.



Haus Carstanjen is a castle in Bonn. It is situated on the river Rhine in the North part of the Plittersdorf area. The original building dates back to 1716. In 1881 Wilhelm Adolf von Carstanjen acquired the building which he rebuilt into its present classical castle form. Today, the castle houses the UNFCCC secretariat.

The original castle consists of an angular, Neo-Gothic three-story building, with two circular turrets, roofed conically in grey slate, mullioned windows, and colonnaded galleries.

To the south of Haus Carstanjen, facing the River Rhine is the Carstanjen family mausoleum (GC23YYM). It takes the form of a large rotunda, in the style of ancient Greece, with a domed roof over several floors of rich internal and external decoration.
