The works of Ludwig van Beethoven, Germany´s greatest composer, are played throughout the world. At the tender age of 12 he was creating sonatas and symphonies which to the day form the basis of every good musical education. In 2020 Germany will join the entire world in celebrating the 250th anniversary of his birth.

The house where Ludwig van Beethoven was born has become a symbol of Bonn. Many of the city´s musical events are dedicated to its most gifted son, and music fans from all over the world every year come to Bonn´s Beethoven festival.
