However, this becomes apparent with the rather sparse signage on site only when one stands in front of it. The exterior facade, in any case, is not particularly worth mentioning.
Unfortunately the house where Beethoven was born is close for repairs, nothing was said about it till you get to the site. more »
Beethoven is probably the greatest ever classical composer. He was also an extremely accomplished pianist. He was born in Bonn, Getmany and his house is a must-visit when visiting the city. Beethoven was a child prodigy and prolific composer throughout his lifetime despite his hearing loss while in his early thirties. There are many artefacts of interest in the house including his piano, hearing aids, letters and signature. There is a gift shop in the house where one can buy all things Beethoven.
This is a place of great historical significance which we should treasure for future generations. The house is original and so small and old. But they have added next door some modern elements to enhance the experience. The building is in the middle of Bonn and so close to restaurants and other entertainment.
