  • It offers the possibility of travel at the time of the birth and childhood of Beethoven with objects of his musical life. It is a good visit to a well kept place.

  • Charming house museum of the great genius of classical music. an absolute must for any stay in the old capital of the FRG. Here it is played more on emotions than anything else but it deserves a careful visit. Surly staff. Time needed 90/120 minutes @gargio76
  • A very olde tourist trap. Not much to be seen beyond the actual building. Been a tourist trap since the 19th century though.
  • Composer's birthplace and childhood home. Inexpensive. No photos inside. A Beethoven Museum.
  • Lots of historic items. Get the audio guide as it includes music.
  • it's a dream come true!! the beethoven's birth house!! there are originals of many sheet music and also the original copy of heiligenstadt testament.
