Atelier Schaffrathhaus in Alsdorf

On Wednesday, accompanying guests of the Colloquium participants have the opportunity to visit the Schaffrathhaus in the former mining town Alsdorf. This Atelier belonged to Prof. Ludwig Schaffrath, a sculptor, painter and university teacher, who is one of the greatest glass artists of the turn of the millenium. His translucent glass windows can be found in buildings all over the world, from churches and schools through hospitals and museums to railway stations and universities. Since his death in 2011, his Atelier in his residence in Ofden, a district of Alsdorf, has been administered by his heirs as well as a committed association and opened to the public. As in his lifetime, the atelier and storage rooms are filled with many works of art, materials and private objects. The collection contains more than 530
artworks and is presented in changing exhibitions. Our shuttle service will take you back to Aachen for lunch at the restaurant
Zum goldenen Einhorn. During the afternoon you can stroll through the city center or visit the outlets of Lindt, Bahlsen and Lambertz.
