    How the Red House got its name, can be easily recognized by the facade color. The former headquarters of the Scheibler entrepreneurial family is now accessible as a museum and presents the living culture of the bourgeoisie around the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries.

    The Red House in Monschau, North Rhine-Westphalia, is a former headquarters of the Scheibler entrepreneurial family and is now accessible as a museum, which presents in particular the bourgeois living culture at the turn of the 18th to 19th centuries. The large patrician house was probably built between 1752 and 1768 by cloth manufacturer Johann Heinrich Scheibler. Because of its facade color it is called Red House.

    With its furnishings in the styles Rococo, Louis-Seize and Empire it still reflects the splendor of the bourgeois living culture in a rare unity. The room with a sumptuous wallpaper on the walls, a table in the dining room covered with a magnificent coat of arms service, a kitchen with shiny brass and copper kettles, salons with writing cabinets from Aachen-Liège, showcases and comfortable armchairs, a ballroom with valuable tapestries and bedrooms with cradles and wash basins invite you a journey into the 18th century.
    The spiral staircase made of oak wood, which is self-supporting and built over 3 floors, is world-famous, with 21 small putti scenes reminiscent of the various stations of the manufacture of cloth.
    In the old Kontoräumen two original fabric samples books with a total of 6000 designs in a variety of decors testify to the variety and high quality of the then Europe-wide traded cloth of his company. In 1963, the Scheibler family, together with the Landschaftsverband Rheinland, founded the Scheibler-Museum Rotes Haus Foundation to continue to preserve this unique architectural monument and make it accessible to the public.
    The Red House Monschau is part of the Euregio Wool Route, which brings to life the cultural heritage of woolen cloth in the three-country region between Verviers, Aachen and Euskirchen.
    Since May 16, 2011, there are 30 video clips on the website of Wollroute, which present the most important sights, monuments and museums of the woolen cloth history of the region in an entertaining and informative way. The short films tell of the common history and show what architectural and museum treasures the region offers.

    The most striking building, if one descends the Eifelsteig over the castle. In the medieval city center you will notice the red house.
    The city is worth a visit.
    It is the end of stage 2 and the beginning of stage 3.
