From the moment I walked into Beethovens house I was swept away in a story of history, music and love. The house is amazing as you can see where Beethoven was born together with music and instruments that he played. The house and small gardens are beautiful. Well worth the visit x

You will love Beethovenhaus if you are a classical music lover. If you love Beethoven, this should be number one on your things to see if you are in Bonn. If you are ambivalent about classical music or Beethoven, then I would suggest you spend your time elsewhere. The man was of course a giant in the history of classical... More

The entrance is very cheap, the audio guide is very helpfull. The house is wellkept and there are a lot of Bethoven's belongs and things related. Give yourself at least 2 hours to enjoy everything.

Travelled to Bonn by tram from Cologne. Bonn is a lovely compact city with a wonderful cathedral interesting crypt and cloisters. The highlight is however a visit to Beethovan's birthplace. The house is full of artefacts from his life and it is possible to loose yourself just following the guide wandering through the small rooms. There is a modern concert... More

We bought tickets to self-tour because the only tour available required you to have a child with you. We were not told about the availability of audio tour equipment until after we had started through. The wall-mounted direct lighting made many of the pictures difficult to see. Only a few of the displays had English descriptions or transcription, so we... More

Interesting museum, if perhaps a little expensive. A selection of artefacts to see, including Beethoven's violin and a love letter found in his travel desk.

A house where Beethoven was born, the house is very simple and it takes little time to walk around, but it is very well presented and interesting. You can also watch a visual music representation that is really impressive.

Being a super huge fan of Beethoven's work since I was a child, I was very excited to visited the house and was not disappointed! The house is very well kept and the souvenir shop is really good. The house is small, but there are many stairs, and you climb two times. The collection is extensive, and you can learn... More

Beethoven house is only a block away from the farmers market, and Bonn Rathaus... surrounded by modern life, but firmly anchored in Beethoven's time. Worth a visit, even for folks who aren't huge classic music fans. I'd allow an hour minimum to tour, even if you have teenagers... Tell them you're going to a time machine. The garden on a... More
