The Mother Beethoven House

Family ties: What connects Koblenz with Beethoven.

The house at Wambachstrasse 204 in the Ehrenbreitstein district of Koblenz is where Ludwig van Beethoven's mother - Maria Magdalena Keverich - was born in 1746.

On the ground floor, the house presents Ehrenbreitstein's history as an electoral residential town. On the upper floor, the history of the Keverich family is presented. This is followed by an exhibition on Beethoven's youth, his friendships and the last years of his life in Vienna.

The Home of Beethoven's Mother also displays historical documents from music and literature, especially those of the writer Sophie von La Roche, her grandson, the poet Clemens Brentano, her granddaughter Bettina von Arnim and the famous opera singer Henriette Sontag, who was born in Koblenz.

The house - exemplary of the bourgeois architecture in Ehrenbreitstein around the middle of the 17th century - was opened in 1975 under the name "Beethoven-Gedenkstätte im Mutter-Beethoven-Haus". It is part of the Koblenz Municipal Museums and is administered by the Mittelrhein Museum.
