Since 1958 the ‘House Monheim‘ in the historical city centre of Aachen...
... has been an exhibition place of particularly impressive upper middle-class cultivation of home décor. The rooms form a harmonious ensemble of various interior design styles from Rococo to the Biedermeier era. In a large room display cabinet a selection of magnificent silver utensils of the 18th century are e.g. presented. More practical equipment in the kitchen – coffee roaster, coffee grinder and porcelain tableware – shows that luxury drinks as coffee, tea and chocolate also found their way into middle-class life.
The impressive ceremonial hall can also be hired for special celebrations, such as weddings.
The Couven Museum has limited wheelchair access. Because it is an old city hall, only a few rooms on the ground floor are wheelchair friendly. Guided tours are available for visually impaired people under the supervision of our trained staff.
