Klangwelle and Beethoven Fests – Beauty of Bonn City

The city of Bonn offers many cultural events all the year round. It is worth mentioning two important events this Fall, ‘Klangwelle’ (Wave of Sound) and the Beethoven Festival.

I moved to Bonn exactly a year ago. While moving I had several fears in mind of integrating in a former federal capital of Germany.However it took me no time to adjust myself in this multicultural city. One thing I was concerned about was entertainment opportunities in this small city. But, wow, thankfully I am pretty happy to explore various colorful activities.

The Klangwelle fest is held for the ninth time this year. It consists of a live musical water show arranged in the middle of the city center. The area is covered with coffee shops, bars, and various restaurants. However a striking feature is a big statue of Ludwig van Beethoven. This year theme was “Element in Emotion.” It had the most beautiful classical melodies, catchy rock and pop songs,with videos shown on a water screen. The show is open every day from 8 to 10 p.m. clock, will continue for two weeks. Here is the video of the show i recorded. 

Ludwig van Beethoven was born in Born in 1770. Each fall the festival the city honors him with a program that reflects the composer’s revolutionary approach to music. “Metamorphoses” is the motto of the Beethovenfest Bonn in 2013. This year the festival features some changes like leaving Beethoven’s music off of the programs at both the opening and closing concerts.
