History of BayernMUN

BayernMUN was founded in 2011. It first started with the local name of the region of northern bavaria around of Nuremberg “Franken” (engl.: franconia) and was called “FrankenMUN”. As the conference became bigger and more international, the name was soon changed to the well known word “Bayern” (engl.: bavaria), and was renamed to what we know today as “BayernMUN”. After switching the location from Neuendettelsau to Nuremberg and accomplishing a larger reform of the conference in structure, design and professionality in 2016/2017 the conference has the appearance it has today. BayernMUN is especially known for its quality in chair, organization and rules of procedure among the German and European world of Model UN. In 2021, due to the ongoing corona pandemic, the BayernMUN21 was held online for the first time.
