Beethoven Festival is postponed to 2021

With great regret, the City of Bonn and Beethovenfeste Bonn gGmbH announce that, due to the still unclear conditions, the Beethovenfest Bonn 2020 under the motto "Resurrect, yes, resurrect" cannot take place as planned in 2020. Therefore, the festival under the artistic direction of Nike Wagner will be postponed.

New period: August 20 to September 10, 2021

Two events are excluded from the postponement and will allow the Beethovenfest Bonn to be open to the public even during the containment of the Corona Pandemic: According to current plans, the special concert "Missa im Dom" will be recorded and streamed on the Internet on August 21, 2020 as a concert without an audience in Cologne Cathedral; the tickets issued free of charge will lose their validity and will not have to be returned. The event "Bauprobe Beethoven" will take place as an artistic site visit to the Beethovenhalle Bonn as previously announced, subject to strict conditions.
