Happy birthday Ludwig van Beethoven!!!
The famous – and famously-deaf – composer was born in the year 1770, and though the exact date isn’t known for sure, most historians cite December as the month, as he was baptized on the 17th of that month.
Many music-rich European cities play annual host to Beethoven-themed festivals such as the one photographed here. Where am I? You already know the continent. What is the country and city?
Gringo - aka Scott - was born outside of Chicago and has lived most of his life in or around big cities. He spent two years of his adult life in Mexico City (talk about big cities!) and fell in love with Mexican food and culture all while weathering the challenges of life in a city with over 20 million people. Life's unpredictable journey has since brought him to Tennessee, where he is close to family and to the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains. Scott also enjoys movies, hiking, top ten lists, and travel in general.

Bonn, Germany 🙂
You guessed it man! Have you been to Bonn?
Being his home town, Bonn’s a good guess, but since Efrain beat me to it, I’ll go with Vienna, a “music-rich city” where Beethoven died died. Vienna AUSTRIA, btw, since you asked for both city and country. 🙂
Your first guess was correct. Vienna was also a good guess. Other cities with connections to famous German-speaking composers include Leipzig, Salzburg, and Augsburg; all would have been good guesses.
Thanks for playing!
P.S. the beard look great on you. 🙂
