Beethoven Monument

The Beethoven Monument on the Münsterplatz.

The Beethoven Monument on the Münsterplatz was unveiled in August 1845 in honour of Beethoven's 75th birthday at the first Beethoven festival. The statue's stance and symbolism characterise the „inspired composer“ who, with an upward-turned gaze, seems to receive a creative inspiration to record it in his notebook with his stylus.
