The place has a piano which Beethoven used, some of his musical instruments, piece of his hair, one of his glasses, and the room in which he was born. However, the museum lacks the spirit. It has a lot of papers/diaries/notes, everything in the museum...More

You might easily miss the place, which I did. The Beethoven House is filled with history and culture; avail of the Audio Guide for better understanding of the treasures inside. Staff were also friendly and helpful.

In 2020, the 250th birthday of the protagonist, the Beethovenhaus will undoubtedly be mobbed, so you should definitely go before. I can imagine that some of the less flattering reviews were due to seeing the museum without the audio guide. Much of the posted information...More

It’s not far to walk from the main high street and just a normal house but quite astounding to realise such a world renown musician came from such humble dwellings. Some fascinating history too as you go in.

They have Beethoven's piano, some of his other instruments, and his agonizingly drafted last will and testament, but most of the other objects are at best tangentially related. Also, there is virtually no attempt to present Beethoven as a musician and composer. Just a lot...More

Although Beethoven only spent the first few years of his life here, the displays go some way to presenting his life, genius, and struggles with deafness. An audio guide is invaluable in explaining the various displays.

Hi Angie. For 6 hs I suggest that you must go to Beethoven House. After that, the Bonn Cathedral that is close. More than these two visits you will have no time.
