Damiano and I paid a visit to the Beethoven-Haus, located in central Bonn, while taking a little break from the conference. Beethoven was born in the house and the collection includes the last piano he ever played, the original manuscript of the Moonlight Sonata and a gift shop for all your Beethoven shopping needs.

I took some shots of the garden outside the building. We weren’t allowed to take photos in the museum without paying a large fee. Unfortunately, I left my copyright money home this trip. Damiano interviewed the museum’s director, who spoke about the collection and history of the house.

Check out the slideshow we put together:
