Every year in the autumn, between the end of August and the beginning of October, Beethoven’s native city of Bonn celebrates the Beethovenfest, welcoming top international orchestras, well-known soloists, major ensembles and promising young performers.

The Beethovenfest Bonn feels a responsibility to contribute to the shaping of the repertoire of the 21st century; every year it commissions new works. The Beethovenfest is innovative not just in its commission policy, but also in its approach to Beethoven and his œuvre, seeking to promote new ways to confront the composer and his work.
The tradition of the Beethovenfest in Bonn goes back to the year 1845, when a three-day long music festival to dedicate the Beethoven monument took place in the Münsterplatz on the occasion of the composer’s 75th birthday.

Beethovenhalle is closed for renovations

The Beethovenhalle concert hall is the home of the Beethoven Orchester Bonn and host to world-class ensembles and artists during the annual Beethovenfest Bonn festival. Since 2016 the Beethovenhalle is closed for renovations. In December 2015 Bonn’s City Council resolved to overhaul and restore the Beethovenhalle in line with historic preservation guidelines. The acoustics in the main hall will also be enhanced. In addition, the Sparkasse KölnBonn bank has pledged five million euros for expansion of the studio. The Bonn City Council also initiated a call to private citizens for donations to support the renovation work - an initiative organized by the City of Bonn together with the "Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz” (German Foundation for Monument Protection) and the ProBeethovenhalle association.

The Beethovenhalle is being renovated in preparation for the international celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020. As the birthplace of Beethoven, and an in-ternational center of culture, the City of Bonn will play a central role in the celebrations. The festival program in 2020 will honor the life and work of Ludwig van Beethoven - a civic cele-bration for Bonn’s citizens and guests that strengthens bonds to both the city and its most famous son.
