I would imagine that Bonn would be naked without a statue of their number one native, but aside from that eh! We sort of had to look around for it because of the Christmas market covering the square.

You'll see it if you're walking downtown, but it's not worth a special trip. It's a statue. Go to the Beethoven-Haus instead.

You can hardly miss this statue of Beethoven dominating the square. No wonder it's become known as a meeting spot. What else can one say?

It is just a green statue of Beethoven. He was a great musician but there is nothing to shout about his statue. The surroundings were not well kept with weeds everywhere. What a great injustice to a great man! We had no time but Beethoven...More

Midi restaurant right next to the statue is excellent for food and people watching. Steaks are probably the best I've eaten

Seriously, the statue is nice. Congrats for the artist. But all in all, it's just that. Odd to 'rate' it on Tripadvisor. There could have been some light music coming from the green field around the statue, a small fountain, lights or a small board...More

Set in a beautiful square the statue commemorates one of music's most famous composer's. Was what we expected he would look like, except bigger!!

It seems to me that Bonn is Beethoven country as there are many statues of him around the city. He was born here and you can even visit his house of birth. The statue is nicely done and fits in the square nicely.
