Beethoven 2020

A big year approaches: In 2020, the world will celebrate Beethoven’s 250th birthday.

When Beethoven is honored around the world in 2020, Bonn – a city that stands for Beethoven like no other place in the world – is certain to play a major role in the festivities. In 2027, the 200th anniversary of Beethoven’s death, Vienna will also take center stage as the city where Beethoven lived, worked and later died.
