It is just a green statue of Beethoven. He was a great musician but there is nothing to shout about his statue. The surroundings were not well kept with weeds everywhere. What a great injustice to a great man! We had no time but Beethoven...More

Midi restaurant right next to the statue is excellent for food and people watching. Steaks are probably the best I've eaten

Seriously, the statue is nice. Congrats for the artist. But all in all, it's just that. Odd to 'rate' it on Tripadvisor. There could have been some light music coming from the green field around the statue, a small fountain, lights or a small board...More

We had lunch a restaurant next to the Beethoven monument in Munsterplatz Square, Bonn. It was a hot sunny day, so we sat in the shade, viewed the bronze statue of Ludwig van Beethoven and people-watched. Unlike most similar type statues of a person which...More

There are several reasons to visit Munsterplatz (including the Munster obviously) but the un-missable and not to be missed statue of Beethoven commands one's attention above all else. It's a dark, brooding Beethoven who looks down upon the spectator, but the scene is brightened a...More
