Bad Godesberg became a municipal district of Bonn in 1969. It is located in the south of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany. From 1949 till 1999 (while Bonn was the capital of (West) Germany), the majority of foreign embassies to Germany were located in Bad Godesberg. Some buildings are still used as embassy branch offices or consulates.
