Theme trail in the permanent exhibition

Ludwig van Beethoven will be 250 years old on December 17. He is considered as a revolutionary who not only fought for freedom in the field of musical art, but also stood up for the ideals of the French Revolution. In the anniversary year 2020, the DHM will bring the composer back to his time: Over stages of Beethoven's reception under the SED regime, the Nazi dictatorship and the Empire, the theme path leads to the core themes in the composer's life and work - Enlightenment and Revolution, Liberation and Restoration, Love and Suffering. The intervention is based on exhibits from the permanent exhibition and on objects from the composer's own collection that have not yet been shown. Participatory and inclusive stations invite visitors to get to know Beethoven with different senses.
