Wonderful collection of historic rooms furnished. Do n't miss the most amazing collection of Delft tiles covering the two last rooms at the end of the house and also the most wobderful fresco of a dutch lake in the upstairs hallway.

I visited here by chance as it was raining and I needed to fill in some time until the rain passed. I was disappointed because I was expecting it to also contain furniture so the rooms looked authentic. It was well maintained but not impressive. It was 5 euros to visit.

This house shows typically Germanic style furniture, porcelain, tiles, paintings and kitchen ware etc, that would be found in 18th century Aachen town houses. It belonged to the city architect Couven. if you are interested in interior design as I am, it was very well displayed and interesting. I particularly liked the tiled rooms.

A town house near the Cathedral, now a museum housing furniture, fireplaces, and an added collection of porcelain. There is also a pharmacy. Fee.

The staff are lovely and knowledgeable. There is no problem if you do not speak German as there are guides who also speak English and explain beautifully about the pieces within the museum. This museum is well worth a visit and remember it's closed on Mondays
