the red house



The building in 1756 is one of the most significant buildings in the baroque style of the Rhineland. 
This house was once the home and office of a major cloth maker family in Monschau. 
It consists of two compound houses (The house of the Swan and the house of the Pelican)

A baroque style carved wooden floating staircase leading to all floors. And very valuable painted parisian tapestry.
The house reflects the luxurious lifestyle and living culture of the bourgeoisie, particularly from the 18th and 19th centuries a special highlight is the cantilevered wooden staircase in rococo style with 21 relief carvings, which have local textile industry to subject.
