Bonn, Germany, is the birthplace of Ludwig von Beethoven. As far as I can tell, he wasn't very fond of the city. But he is honored here anyway.
Yesterday, Talitha and I visited the house where he was born and lived for a while. And we encountered him all over the city, as you can see in the pictures below.
Whenever we visit a historical place, the gift shop is a must-see. At the Beethoven House, almost everything was in German. Talitha's purchase at the Beethoven house was one that made me glad and is in a language that transcends German or English. She bought a music book and can't wait to get home with it to her piano.
