What to expect

For all enthusiasts of classical music and for the friends of Ludwig van Beethoven, we offer a special music tour to the composer’s home Bonn. Be part of the celebrations of Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020.

Beethoven is considered the most frequently played classical composer and Bonn is the perfect place to celebrate the golden anniversary. Follow the ingenious composer’s foot-steps in his hometown. Visit the birthplace, the Beethoven House, which impressively documents the life and work of the city’s greatest son. Relive further moments of his life, e.g. see a handwritten transcript of Symphony No. 9. This tour also offers you the option of visiting the important cities of art and culture Cologne and Düsseldorf. On the occasion of this jubilee, you will experience Beethoven’s music in every corner. What a unique pleasure!

My tip: "Rhine in Flames is a fireworks spectacle, which is performed several times at different places along the Rhine. In addition to the visual experience, the acoustic pleasure is a unique adventure thanks to the variety of music around the event."
