Two times in a row Bonn was voted to one of top tourist-destinations in 2020. Main reasons are the big festivities planned around the 250. jubilee of Ludwig van Beethoven taking place in 2020. The composer was born in Bonn in the Beethoven-Haus that is now a museum and was freshly refurbished for the jubilee. (Anniversary program: www.bthvn2020.de/en)

In October, the famous Australian travel publisher Lonely Planet voted Bonn to No. 5 on the list of top must-see cities for 2020. Just recently, also the American publisher Frommer´s added Beethoven's home town to the top 20 places to go in 2020.
Malte Boecker, artistic director of the Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH who is coordinating the festivities: “Bonn is on its way to become top tourist destination 2020. Germany´s representation abroad with the slogan #DiscoverBeethoven pays off as much as the radiant anniversary program BTHVN2020 or the reopening of the Beethoven-Haus, one of the internationally outstanding music museums. We already feel a demand that can only be explained by the jubilation effect.”

Together with the German National Tourist Board, NRW Tourism and Tourismus & Congress GmbH, the Beethoven Jubiläums GmbH is promoting Bonn and the region as an attractive travel destination– both on a national and international level.
