  2. How it all began

For one month from 5 September to 3 October 2024, Bonn pays homage to its most famous son, Ludwig van Beethoven. The audience can choose from around 80 concerts at venues in Bonn and the Rhein-Sieg district, from large international orchestras to pop acts - as well as talks, exhibitions and workshops for everyone.

The Beethovenfest Bonn is one of the largest and most innovative classical music festivals in Germany. Beethoven grew up in Bonn and experienced his most formative years here.

The festival aims to spread the spirit of the young, progressive and outgoing Beethoven and create an environment for artists to bring Beethoven's work to life in the 21st century.

This is reflected in the numerous events in the festival programme, ranging from classical music, jazz and chamber music to participatory concerts, discourse and dance events.
