This gallery is remarkable. We had heard that they had a good collection of art from Germany and the low countries, but that description didn't really do it justice. They have all sorts of works, including some excellent Italian and Spanish paintings as well. The building itself was as attractive as the collection it housed, and walking around was enjoyable in and of itself. We visited on a Saturday and expected it to be a bit busy, but it was very quiet. I think for the first twenty minutes or so we may have even been the only visitors there!

If you like art and history this Museum is a must in Aachen. Located in a very old villa it shows very interesting exhibits.

We went there for the special photo exhibition but realized that the house itself is really grand and interesting to see, and the medieval sculpture collection is fantastic.

An extremely quirky collection which isn’t really set up terribly well for English speaking visitors (they have one leaflet and all of the rest of the labelling and the laminated guides in each room are all in German only) but this belies an incredibly quirky collection with some real gems. The building is about ten to fifteen Minutes walk from the railway station (Hauotbanhof) and is around the same from AdelbertStrasse, Aachen’s biggest shopping street. The ground floor houses a simply stunning collection of mediaeval statuary which has to be seen I think. Some beautiful pieces which show German sculpture and the influences of other mediaeval styles on it. The first floor houses a substantial collection of painting which varies across Europe and period - two Rembrandt’s, a sassoferrato and a Zurburan - but a lot of also rans You will also find silver and ivory and other artefacts scattered across the museum The cabinet of curiosities is a good example of the collections of one of the donors but is incredibly quirky and of its period - including the obligatory stuffed baby crocodile . The second floor has a modern collection I didn’t see but does have a stained glass gallery with pieces ranging from simply lovely Middle Age Era pieces to late 20th century , with some surprisingly beautiful 20th century stained glass . Worth a visit . There is a cafe which we couldn’t get into because of a large and very noisy tour party
