Beethoven-Haus Bonn

The IAMIC International Conference will take place at Beethoven-Haus Bonn, birthplace of and memorial site for the composer Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827). Today, it functions as a museum, concert hall, archive and research institute.

The museum at Ludwig van Beethoven's birth place is one of the most frequented music museums worldwide and one of the 100 most popular sights in Germany. Since December 17, 2019, the museum has been hosting a new and enlarged permanent exhibition. It provides a new approach to experiencing Beethoven as an artist and fellow human being in a modern, inspiring and exciting way. New rooms are the vault with manuscripts, a music room for regular concerts on historic keyboards and a special area for temporary exhibitions.

Already in 1989, the Beethoven-Haus Society celebrated its 100th anniversary and opened a new building for its library and collection. Centrepiece is the Hermann J. Abs chamber music hall, designed by the Cologne architect Thomas van den Valentyn and named after the president of the Association of many years, Hermann J. Abs (1901-1994).
