Couven Museum

Life Culture from Rokoko to Biedermeier: The Couven
Museum is situated in a house belonging to the renowned
Aachen apothecary family Monheim, built in the year
1778. Only one minute’s walk from the market square, the
museum – affectionately referred to as Aachen’s Living
Room – traces the development of middle-class lifestyle and
living culture in the 18th and 19th century. The museum’s
20 furnished rooms range in style from Rokoko to the early
classicism of of Louis XVI and from Napoleonic Empire style
to Biedermeier. Of particular interest is the presentation of
Aachen-Liège furniture arrangements of the 18th century,
complete with historical embellishments and costly porcelain
and glass. The museum is named after the famous
Aachen architect Johann Joseph Couven (1701-1763).
