Thanks for your help.
I based my vehicle ID on PW 16, but this was corrected by Timm Haasler. (From 9 Pz Div to Pz Lehr Div.)

According to several websites :

It seems to be the Panther N°741 of the Panzerbrigade 106 FHH
The exact location of the illustrious Panther lost by Panzer-Brigade 106 FHH on March 8th, 1945 in the city centre of Bonn has now been established, both for the original place of loss and the spot it ended up after being moved after the war.
The Panther ended its service life in front of the old "Beethoven-Halle" concert hall at the Brückenstrasse (now Berliner Freiheit) at the western ramp of the Hindenburg-Brücke (now Kennedy-Brücke) leading across the Rhein river towards Bonn-Beuel. At least two pictures are known, published in various books such as Friedrich Bruns' unit history for PzBrig 106 FHH.
That's all what I know.

the Panther #741 is an unzimmerited ausf. G with reinforced gun mantlet.
The Panther of Pz.Abt. 2106 FHH in Bonn is an ausf. A, with zimmerit, this is not the same vehicle as #741.
