Appeal for the new Beethoven house: every donation counts! The Museum is designed to shine in a new splendour in Beethoven's birthplace. High pressure is already working on the concept for the new permanent exhibition. It is to be opened in 2019 Despite the public's commitments, there are still 600.000 euro, which the Beethoven-Haus Association itself has to raise. You can help the world to be presented with a new Beethoven house in 2020 Here you can find more information: http://www.beethoven-haus-bonn.de/sixcms/media.php/75/BHB_Fundraising.pdf
