The building on the marketplace lost its function in 1978 as the seat of the city administration, since the capacity was no longer sufficient after the 1969 completed incorporations and in Nordstadt a new townhouse was built. However, it is still used by the city of Bonn as a representation object. Significant decisions and meetings outside the activities of the committees and the City Council continue to take place there. In addition, in the Old Town Hall important speeches and celebrations are held for the city. Within the scope of these tasks, besides the Lord Mayor, the Office of the Board of Directors of Fundamental Affairs and the Board of Directors International Affairs and Representation have their headquarters in the Old Town Hall. The city of Bonn offers the opportunity to marry on selected dates in the wedding hall of the Town Hall.
