2020 is advancing steadily – the year that celebrates Beethoven's 250th anniversary. As a precursor to the anniversary, the Beethoven-Tour was installed permanently in Bonn and the region. It will surpass the composer's birthday celebrations.

The tour was commissioned by the Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH, who celebrates the composer's anniversary with a plethora of events and concerts.

The columns were designed by Monika Müller-Rieger (Müller-Rieger GmbH). They are 2,5 meters high and provide interesting insight into Beethoven's 22 years he spent in the region. Seven stations in Bonn, for example, show trilingual animations, informational content, and photos that revive Beethoven. The tour was co-assigned by “Bürger für Beethoven” who also supported the project conceptual and content-wise. The Beethoven-Haus Bonn was also closely involved.

Throughout the city, 11 steles were installed under the moniker of “BTHVNstory”, also at the brand new shop of the Beethoven-Haus, the Remigius Church or the statue of Beethoven that was unveiled in 1845 upon insistence of Robert Schumann. The inner-city part of the tour is planned to take around 2 hours.

Under the name “BTHVNregion” 11 further steles were installed in the larger Rhein-Sieg district. They contain favorite destinations of Beethoven, among those the Petersberg, the Drachenfels or the Benedict-Abbey Michaelsberg where 11-year old Beethoven enjoyed playing the organ.
