Bonn’s love for its native composer is evident everywhere. The Beethoven Statue is an expressive piece of sculpting that inspires thousands of artists visiting Bonn. Installed in 1845, the bronze statue was installed on the Münsterplatz in a ceremony attended by Friedrich Wilhelm IV and Queen Victoria.

Sculpted by Ernst Julius Hähnel and Friedrich von Amerling, the monument represents the Beethoven’s significant contribution to music.The statue was cast by the Nuremberg founder Jakob Daniel Burgschmiet.

The idea to build a permanent memorial for Beethoven was taken by the “Bonn Association for the Beethoven Monument", headed by August Schlegel in 1835. The statue represents the 4 pillars of music:

  • Instrumental
  • Symphony
  • Spirituality
  • Opera

A supporting concrete sculpture made by Klaus Kammerichs was unveiled in 1986. The Beethoven Monument hosts the annual three-month musical carnival every November, extended up to Ash Wednesday in February.
