Perhaps Der Rotes Haus is actually unremarkable, but on the other hand a beautifully decorated historical home can always inspire us old-house junkies to find interesting things upon which to remark. This is no exception! Even if you think you've seen every historical home in...More

It was so interesting to hear and see about how they lived and developed a very essential part of old Monschau.
