In recent years, the modern conference centre – located in the heart of the former government district in Bonn – has evolved to become a key venue for political discourse. It is a centre for education and culture, for discussions and encounters – for independent events and for joint conferences and guest conferences.
As a venue for sustained dialogue, the GSI offers 32 conference and seminar rooms with seating for up to 400 persons, covering a spacious 2000m² – and equipped with professional, state-of-the-art conference equipment.
Our 3-star superior hotel offers 210 single and double rooms with en suite shower and toilet, telephone, radio and TV, and restaurants to cater to all culinary needs.
Each year, more than 2000 events are hosted in the GSI, attracting some 190,000 visitors; more than 50,000 of these stay overnight in our hotel. As think tank and conference venue, the GSI is thus one of the top addresses in Europe.
As a German city in the United Nations, an international centre for science and conferences, and a city noted for international development cooperation, Bonn is the ideal location for the GSI for promoting political discourse in Europe. The GSI is the “Think Tank by the Rhine”, and its focus is both European and international.
