Beethoven's Mechelen

Ludwig van Beethoven, a great German composer, who we associate with the European Anthem. But ‘van Beethoven’, that doesn’t sound German at all? That is because his roots are in Flanders. Ludwig’s grandfather, Lodewijck, grew up in Mechelen!

Through his eyes you walk along the 18th century streets of Mechelen. Discover spots and buildings where the van Beethovens could be seen daily. What would Lodewijck still recognize if he were to come back to his city of birth today? We frame the story of this well-known family from Mechelen in the bigger picture of our Burgundian capital of the Netherlands.
