Beethoven Museum

The new Beethoven Museum provides a comprehensive account of the life and work of the great composer Ludwig van Beethoven. As has been known for generations, the buidling is associated with a moving testimonial by Beethoven. It was here, in 1802, that he wrote the "Heiligenstadt Testament", the letter addressed but never sent, to his brother in which he expressed his despair about his increasing deafness.
