  • Based on Tripadvisor information that the house never closes, except for major holidays, we visited on Tuesday 20th September, only to find it closed!

  • Very nice place to visit. Well organized and informative. You will find a variety of Beethoven’s belongings as well as paintings and his music books and instruments. Loved it! Sadly no photos allowed inside the house.
  • Small house filled with interesting tidbits on Beethoven including a unique statue made from a plaster mask while he was not very old, the string quartet instruments he was gifted, items from his daily life, facsimile scores, ear trumpets, and info on his friends, patrons, and acquaintances. I recommend doing the audio tour as it will add quite a bit of context and information to the experience. Perhaps too much. If one were to listen to every entry in the guide you'd likely be there for several hours.
