Schumann House Society in Bonn

With the Schumann House in Endenich, the town of Bonn possesses one of the most important memorials in remembrance of the composer Robert Schumann.
In this house, media, music and the memorial are combined into a living unit which receives international attention reaching far beyond Bonn.

The Schumann House Society in Bonn was founded in 1982 as a citizens’ initiative for the town of Bonn to acquire the Schumann House. Since then, the Society has set itself the task of honouring the memory and the work of Robert Schumann at his last residence and considers itself, in particular, as the representative of interests on all matters concerning the house before the municipal administration, the political parties, and the general public.

In view of increasing budget problems faced by the federal town of Bonn, the Society is trying to secure the existence of the library and the cultural use of the house.

The Schumann House Society of Bonn

  • Supports the memorial and the music library through financial donations and donations in kind
  • Organises concerts, readings, and lectures
  • Takes part in the culture festival “Schumann Festival in Bonn”, originally founded as "Endenicher Herbst"
  • Promotes publications on the subject of Schumann and Bonn
  • Advocates relevant renovation and construction measures.

The Schumann House Society in Bonn needs your help to cope with these tasks and to be able to continue its activity. We would be very happy if you could decide to support our work by becoming a member of the Schumann House Society.
