Beethoven Bonn

The story of Ludwig van Beethoven

Ludwig van Beethoven is the most well-known “child of the federal city of Bonn”. He is the most frequently played classical composer, is known worldwide and has inspired generations. This year Ludwig van Beethoven “will be” 250 years old. We wish him a happy birthday!



Due to the Corona crisis, the Beethoven Festival has been extended until September 2021. Perhaps the only good thing to come of this crisis.

Information about Beethovenfest

During the 'Beethovenfest' you can experience a variety of concerts, exhibitions, operas, dance and theatre productions. Because individual events are currently being postponed, we ask for your understanding that at the moment, we are unable to publish any precise dates.

Beethoven Tour in Bonn

A Beethoven tour of Bonn and the neighbouring Rhein-Sieg area is worth it in any event.  Beethoven spent the first 22 years of his life in Bonn. The Beethoven tour invites you get to know Beethoven at original locations in Bonn.

22 information points are spread over Bad Godesberg, Bonn and Rhein-Sieg Kreis. These describe the young Beethoven in pictures and 3 different languages. Discover places that inspired Beethoven and get to know other important contemporary artists. Ludwig van Beethoven met Joseph Haydn in the Redoubt just 300 metres from the Insel Hotel.

Your tour naturally includes Beethoven’s birthplace - the “Beethoven Haus”. Just a few minutes away is the Remigius Church where Ludwig van Beethoven was christened.

We recommend doing the Beethoven Tour in good weather by bicycle. This way you can spread all of the various locations over 2 days in a relaxed manner, exploring the ones from Bad Godesberg via Drachenfels, or from Bonn to Rheinbach - exploring the region’s lovely countryside at the same time. Sometimes you will pass parts of the moated-castle route. Discover one of the largest apple-growing areas in Germany, may be wander through the Kotten forest and experience idyllic Wachtberg - the ‘Toscana’ of the Voreifel region.

We will be pleased to assist you with further route planning. Please ask us.
We can put together a packed lunch with a range of delicacies for your tour when pre-ordered.
