Vox populi: a festival for Bonn

The complete program will be published later in the summer.

Free of charge


The celebrations aren’t confined to the concert hall: this year the Beethovenfest will open its season with a grand two-day open-air festival. All Bonn residents and visitors are cordially invited to take part. More than 1000 of the city’s schoolchildren will convene on six stages, transforming the city centre into a gigantic sound-space. The evening will feature a nod to Beethoven: the Ninth, conducted by Herbert von Karajan on the large projection screen in front of City Hall. The celebrations will continue the next day at the same spot: public viewing from Bonn’s World Conference Centre, with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra playing colourful Russian music and Beethoven at his very best!
