If you are a fan of history and visiting Bonn this is not a bad quick diversion. Tucked away and fairly non-descript; it’s humbling to see where greatness was born. Didn’t have a chance to enter or tour but the outside was a pleasure by...More

This was my third visit, the first for 15 years, to the Beethoven House. If you are remotely interested in the life and works of the great composer, then the Beethoven House is a must-visit.

Well, it's where Beethoven was born. It is a shrine for classical music lovers. Lots of handwritten notes and postcards shining insight into Beethoven's life are displayed. It seems very personal walking in the rooms where such a great musician grew up.

Hi Angie. For 6 hs I suggest that you must go to Beethoven House. After that, the Bonn Cathedral that is close. More than these two visits you will have no time.
