The Digital Archives contain unique music manuscripts, first editions, letters and pictures from the museum's and library's collections of the Beethoven-Haus.
By linking more than 6,100 documents on 37,600 coloured scans of high quality, 1,600 audio files (music examples, audio letters) and 7,600 text files, Beethoven's thinking, life and work become tangible and can be experienced in a visual and audible way. Portraits and topographical depictions show the composer and the world he lived in.
Apart from the internet presentations, visitors can use the intranet of the Beethoven-Haus to view all digital documents in high resolution and listen to music pieces in full length. Museum and studio visitors as well as library users have access to these documents.
