Couven Museum is in the center of Aachen, a splendid arts center, it was an ancient "Maison de Maître" with ancient furnitures, a little bit of an other period, a flair of Holland interiors, there was very nice tiles, white and blue, Delft; Couven Museum merite a visit, when you are in Aachen.

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

The Couven Museum, located close to the Charlemagne Museum is a curious antidote to the town dedicated to the history of Charlemagne. The Couven is located in a house and on various floors. There you will find rooms decorated with beautifully carved oak furniture. There's an equipped kitchen and two rooms completely tiled in Dutch tiles in the form of... More

Well presented - lots of nice stuff on display, with a good guide leaflet in multiple languages. Not a must see - but if you like history and have the time it is well worth the 5 Eu charge for admission.

This museum was a private family house with an apothecary on the ground floor (the family business). It is not a must see but it is interesting because it shows furniture, porcelain, silverware, tools and instruments for the kitchen and apothecary from the 1700 to the 1900. It is worthwhile visiting if you are close by. There is a guide... More
