    "Prinzen, Splacht und Pensionäre" is the title of episode 34 of the "Bonn City Stories", which episode 34 is devoted to the beginning of the 20th century:
    "Well-to-do educated citizens shape society as well as students. And they often come from the best families. 112 sons of ruling noble families are registered in Bonn before 1918. (...) A photo in the university museum shows [Kaiser] Wilhelm II. As a young man in the dark Dressed up with the color of the corps. From 1877 he studied for four semesters in Bonn what one could need for governance: law, history, a little math. In the east wing of the electoral palace, the Hohenzollern princes have set up a comfortable study room. An academic study Nobody expects them to graduate. After all, God gave them a professional qualification in their cradle. The fact that Bonn rose to become a so-called Prinzen-Uni surely has to do with the manageability of the small town. (...) The beautiful location at the entrance to The Siebengebirge and the romantic Rhine Valley do the rest to establish Bonn as a 'summer university'. "

    There is currently a mask requirement everywhere in Bonn where many people are out and about!
    The Hofgarten forms a beautiful green oasis between the university, the Rhine promenade and the academic art gallery on the edge of the city center.
