Bonn, Germany (capital of the Federal Republic 1949-1990 until re-unification) 5

Bonn is a nice looking city on the Rhine and became the capital of Germany after WWII because of Konrad Adenauer who was the first chancellor of Post-War Germany. Adenauer was from the Rhineland and wanted the capital on the Left Bank of the Rhine. Bonn was a small city for the capital of a major country. After reunification, Berlin again became the capital although about half the German Government remains in Bonn. Beethoven was born in Bonn and it is a center of culture.
