Fancy some pop and rock “Made in Germany”?

Starting falteringly in the 50s, German pop developed slowly but surely. What seemed home-grown talent at first travelled happily to the four corners of the globe and climbed the charts around the world. The following decades brought innovation and diversification. Heavy Metal rocked not only the stages at such iconic venues as Rock am Ring and Berlin’s Waldbühne, Germany’s music scene thrived and re-invented itself.

New impetus was provided by Techno influencing a whole generation of artists throughout the musical community. Nina’s 99 Balloons was a statement of joy which the world shared with us after the Fall of the Wall. To this day German pop and rock artists are a firm and much-loved facet of German culture and a reflection of the freedom to express our feelings.

Between the sea and the Alps – Beethoven's travels through Germany

Beethoven left an impressive mark on Germany. Both in terms of music and as a traveller. His home is in Bonn in the hilly Middle Rhine Valley near the Siebengebirge mountains. At the tender age of 8, he travelled to Cologne for a performance. The stops on his travels that ultimately led him to Vienna include Koblenz, Limburg and Frankfurt am Main, Würzburg, Nuremberg, Regensburg and Passau, Munich and Augsburg. In summer 1791, he travelled by ship along the Rhine and Main with his patron Archduke Maximilian Francis, where he stopped in Aschaffenburg. As it happens, Beethoven was to go on his most important concert tour five years later. It took him to Dresden, Leipzig and Berlin and its highlight was a performance for King Frederick William II.
