The Suermondt-Ludwig Museum is the “salon” of the people of Aachen and offers a wide range of art!

The museum represents art from antiquity to classical modernity. However, the medieval sculpture collection is one of the museum's highlights. The Suermondt-Ludwig Museum owes its extensive collection to donations from Aachen citizens and many other patrons. It has resided in the former Villa Cassalette since 1901. It was named after the two major donors Barthold Suermondt and Irene and Peter Ludwig. In addition to numerous changing exhibitions, the museum also offers an extensive educational program.
