People Interested in Culture
A wide range on offer
In Bonn there are a large number of major Museums for people interested in culture: The Museum Mile with its high-quality exhibitions attracts visitors from Germany and abroad. The Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Haus der Geschichte of the Federal Republic of Germany are amongst the most important museums in Germany. However, these are only some the many interesting museums in the city.
The subject Political Bonn and the region with the re-designed permanent exhibition in the Haus der Geschichte of the Federal Republic of Germany as well as opportunities to visit authentic, contemporary places such as Palais Schaumburg, the Chancellor's bungalow, Villa Hammerschmidt, former embassies and Adenauer's house in Rhöndorf are enjoying increasing popularity.
As well as Beethoven, Clara and Robert Schumann have a permanent place in Bonn (the composer spent the last few years of his life by the side of his wife, the famous pianist) – not only through their graves in the old cemetery (Alter Friedhof). The music of Beethoven and Schumann is played at many concerts during the course of the year. Ludwig van Beethoven is celebrated every year with his own music festival in September/October. The Beethoven Orchestra Bonn and Klassische Philharmonie Bonn (particularly popular through the annual Poppelsdorfer Palace concerts) are also important ambassadors for Beethoven.
The city of Bonn does not only offer classical music, but also hosts a large number of events by other music genres. The KUNST!RASEN in Bonn-Gronau always stages beautiful outdoor concerts in the summer with real stars, the jazz festival at the beginning of the summer presents international and German jazz greats together with the next generation of creative talent. The international silent film days weave their magic every year in the Arkadenhof of the University on warm summer evenings with an open-air cinema accompanied by live music just like in the good old days. The stages in Bonn also present a broad spectrum: In addition to opera and plays, there are private theatres and dance ensembles plus successful cabaret and small intimate stages.
