Station Living culture
Couven Museum

The Couven-Museum offers an insight into upper-middle-class lifestyle after the town fire of 1656. It shows living rooms and furnishings from the 17th to the 19th centuries and in this way complements the stations "History" and "Living culture" on the Route Charlemagne.
