The Beethovenhalle is to be the main venue for the 2020 commemoration of Ludwig van Beethoven, celebrating 250 years since the birth of the great composer. Preparations for the event will include a complete refurbishment and modernisation of the concert hall. The refurbishment works have begun in October 2016 and should be completed by the summer of 2018. The venue will not be in use throughout this period.
