  • Open-air viewing on September 10, 2017, on the Bonn Marktplatz

Deutsche Post DHL Group is once again a partner of the international Beethovenfest in Bonn. The company not only supports the event financially, but also offers a venue at the Post Tower for free concerts. One highpoint is the series "Begegnungen" (Encounters), successfully started in 2016.

"Bonn's Beethovenfest is a delight to the people in Bonn, the region and beyond," said Christof Ehrhart, Director of Corporate Communications & Responsibility, Deutsche Post DHL Group. "We at DPDHL have created an innovative format that conveys this feeling to different target groups, in the form of our concert series 'Begegnungen', which means 'encounters' in English. It's a fusion of the highest artistic quality and new surprising musical ideas." The company will also provide an inspiring concert experience for visitors on September 17, 2017, at the World Conference Center Bonn.

Throughout the Beethovenfest music festival, the Post Tower Lounge too will be a venue. The Lounge has been the location of a diverse and free musical side program of chamber music, French chansons and jazz for more than twelve years now. And because its program for young visitors has proven so popular over the last few years, we will once again be offering the event series "Classical Music for Children" in a variety of formats for different age groups. Thanks to these musical happenings at the headquarters in Bonn, the company is once again setting an example with its extensive local involvement in the areas of culture and education.

Traditionally, Deutsche Post DHL Group presents the open-air concert "Bühne frei für Beethoven" (clear the stage for Beethoven), to be held this year on September 9, 2017. Some 1,000 students from Bonn and the surrounding region will make the entire city resound with their music. In addition, Deutsche Post DHL Group is once again promoting open-air viewing on September 10, 2017, on the Bonn Marktplatz. This year's Beethovenfest will run from September 8 to October 1.
