Beethoven-Haus Museum, Bonn Reviews - Write a Review

  • We got a free guided tour. It was very interesting and informative. Costs 4.5 euros for students and 6 for others. It has instruments and things used by Beethoven!

  • For 6 euros you are allowed to visit Beethoven's first home, decorated with people and objects from his life. However, taking pictures is strictly forbidden, and you will often notice someone is always near you to enforce that rule, which sometimes makes the visitor feel rather uncomfortable. The gift shop is very good, but also very expensive.

  • The Beethoven house consisted of 12 rooms. I was really surprised by room 10 and room 1. Room 1 I either missed it or it was the entrance. Room 10 was the connection between rooms 9 and 11 with a surface of approximately 1sq.m. It is not allowed to touch anything (understandable), especially the pianos on the top floor. However, most of the things (mainly Beethoven's personal things are protected in special cases, more understandable). Importantly it is forbidden to take photos inside the house. Not avoid the flash, but no photos at all. If one wants to protect the pianos, one can easily put plastic barriers or some stands with a rope can do the job. Everybody has been in a museum and can understand the off limits zone. Not everyone, however, can comprehend the "no photos" policy, expressed in a not a very nice way as well. I would not take my friends to see it as a place of interest.
