Closing of the Beethovenhalle due to Refurbishment Works

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 mid of February 2019. The venue will not be in use throughout this period.

In partnership with the city of Bonn, the heritage organisation Deutsche Stiftung Denkmalschutz and the charitable body Verein ProBeethovenhalle are raising money for additional refurbishment work for which there is currently no funding. For further information, or to make a donation go to: or
