Schumann´s house, Bonn

The composer Robert Schumann spent the last few years of his life in the building at Sebastianstraße 182 in Bonn-Endenich. This has now become the music library of the City of Bonn and the Schumann memorial rooms. The endearing small museum in Bonn-Endenich displays furniture, letters and memorabilia owned by the Schumann family. The city's music library in the Schumann’s House contains 46,000 notes, books, periodicals, CDs, videos and new media. The annual Schumann Festival has been taking place since 1998 to honour Robert Schumann. Concerts are also held in the Schumann’s House, which concentrate on Schumann's piano and chamber music in particular.
