POSTPONED to 2021

We deeply regret that Beethovenfest Bonn 2020 – due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic – will not take place as planned from September 4 – 27, 2020. Fortunately, we have been able to postpone the festival almost in its entirety, and it will now take place – under the artistic direction of Nike Wagner – from August 20 to September 10, 2021. Here you can find all concerts that could be postponed to 2021.
