I've been here a couple times. Suggest you rent the audio guide in your own language as it goes into some more details. The Beethoven-Haus is pretty easy to walk through, and it is all on your own time. There are stairs, but not too many. It is interesting to see the old original instruments as well as copies of...

Beethoven-Haus Bonn, is located at the city center. However, Beethoven lived in a number of locations both in Bonn, Germany and Vienna, Austria. He played violin and grand piano since childhood with astonishing skill. But he has never heard what he was playing. It gave me a great lesson that music is beyond the five sense organs as evidenced by... More

It´s astonishing to look at a piano in this lovely little house and think that the fingers of one of the best composers of all times have touched those keys. Visiting this museum really lets you dive into Beethoven´s world. Definitely worth a visit.

Visited the Beethoven-Haus with a school group of 20. We found the staff very helpful and more than willing to make our visit worthwhile. The house includes many interesting exhibits which give a good insight into the building and Beethoven's life at the time. Certainly a must-see for the musician with a well stocked shop with a good range of... More

Spent a morning in Beethoven House. Very detailed information about the great composer's life. $6 for entry is very valuable. You can go and visit the "Haribo" outlet factory after this. not too far away.

If you like history and classical music than you can't go wrong visiting this historic house. Most of the museum is in english in case german isn't your first language.

If you are a classical musician or simply a classical music lover, the Beethoven birthplace is something you must see. There are a few manuscripts that you can view as well as his viola and a lock of his hair. There are reproductions of other Beethoven memorabilia, and there is a theater where you can listen to excerpts from Fidelio... More

This place is worth a visit just to say you've been to Beehoven's house. There's a plaque on the wall outside identifying it.
