Well, it's where Beethoven was born. It is a shrine for classical music lovers. Lots of handwritten notes and postcards shining insight into Beethoven's life are displayed. It seems very personal walking in the rooms where such a great musician grew up.

I am not that good in music but I enjoy the calmness it brings to me. It is small house, three floors full of instruments and interesting items describing Beethoven's life at that time. The 3-D particle music was OK. Take a guided tour to...More

This small house is a wonderful little museum of history. It is well laid out and tells the story of Beethoven. It is worth the time and effort to visit even if your not a Beethoven fan.

Well, it cost 6 Euros for an adult ticket, very underwhelming indeed. Nice old house but not much on the inside. Best thing for me was the Beethoven bust in the garden. Whatever you do, don’t queue for this.

It is interesting to have been in the building where Beethoven was born. There was a simple English room-by-room guide (pamphlet). However, all the signs under the items on display throughout the house were in German, so people who don't know the language would not...More

Hi Angie. For 6 hs I suggest that you must go to Beethoven House. After that, the Bonn Cathedral that is close. More than these two visits you will have no time.
