Weißer Saal

Starting in 1727, this room was redecorated by Italian stucco artists and transformed into the Town Hall‘s small celebration hall. In addition to the handmodelled stucco work, six portraits of prominent figures catch the eye. These are the envoys of the powers that brought an end to the Austrian War of Succession with the “Aachen Peace“ in 1748. The best known of them is the British noble John Montagu, the third Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792), famous most of all for the fast food named after him. His portrait hangs on the south wall on the right. Before leaving the room, take a look at the magnificent work of the Italian stucco artists. Keep your eyes open for a winged “horse“ with a goat‘s head, a bird‘s tail and woman‘s breasts! In the four medallions you can see symbols of antique sovereign virtues: the fasces and yoke, the sword pointed towards heaven between the Pillars of Hercules, the Ten Commandments with a pair of scales and finally a lion with a sceptre.

Goldener Schwan

Goldener Schwan

Already in 1438 the “Schwan ” was mentioned as a wine tavern. 15 wine houses should have been based around the market square at that time. After selling wine, in the 15th century home-brewed beer was offered to the guests. The “Schwan” was most likely the ancestral home of the Swane family who owned several houses around the market place. The house “Zum Schwan ” was sold in 1460 by Mayor von Roide to Johann von Ameln for 17 guilders annual percentage rate.
The “Goldener Schwan” is one of the oldest restaurants in Aachen. Ground and first floor are triaxial and the upper floors were built in two axes. The facade of the five-story building dates from the 19th Century. The courtyard facade and the core of the house are from the 17th Century and were built after the great fire in Aachen.
In the nineties of the 19th Century, the brewery was owned by the Bonnie family, who also maintained a restaurant. After the Second World War, the “Schwan ” was one of the first new restaurants, which was the destination of the hungry and poor population.
