The Villa Bonn is one of the few completely preserved upper-class palaces in Frankfurt am Main. Built in 1895-97 for the banker Wilhelm Bernhard Bonn, the house passed into the ownership of the Frankfurt Society for Trade, Industry and Science in 1923. The architect was the important Berlin Royal Court Architect Ernst Eberhard von Ihne, who, among other things, built the Bode Museum in Berlin and today's Schlosshotel in Kronberg for Empress Victoria, the widow of Emperor Friedrich III. The neoclassical architecture bears witness to the generosity and cosmopolitanism of this era. Rich decorations in wood and stucco characterise diverse, stylish and representative rooms for the most diverse occasions.
