Birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven in Bonn, Germany

The first stop on our city walk in Bonn: The birthplace of composer Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827). At the Beethoven-Haus I was especially impressed by a collection of hearing aids for the deaf artist.

Another interesting exhibit seen at a special exhibition was a worldwide stamp collection which included only pieces featuring Beethoven. By the way, a famous festival in Bonn is the Beethovenfest.
