About the property

Stay in a beautifully renovated monument in the heart of the old town of Monschau - an original Monschau house with the ambience of the old times: half-timbered, oblique walls, wooden floors and an old staircase testify, but today of course with modern comfort. In Haus am Holzmarkt Clemens August and Mathilde Breuer, the founders of the Historical Mustard Mill Monschau, once lived with their 8 children. "Ömchen Mathilde" now serves as a name for the lower apartment, named after her daughter Guste Amalia, "Tant Jusschen", the upper apartment is named. The first mustard was made here in the basement, at the beginning still with a mortar.

In this house are two apartments each with about 72sqm developed, ideal for 2-4 persons. In the living rooms there is also a comfortable sofa, TV and WLAN. In the kitchen you will find beside the stove and oven also a dishwasher, a microwave, as well as a coffee machine and a water cooker.

Monschau and the surrounding area are beautiful. Here you will find everything your heart desires: history, culture, nature, sport and of course enjoyment - not least in our historic mustard mill.

Relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time in this old house in Monschau and Ruth is an extraordinary host. We stayed there for a week during Christmas and New year holidays with a 9 month old baby. The house is recently renovated and has all modern amenities you need, but also has an extraordinary charm and history in it. It is centrally located and close to shops and restaurants but also many mild trails for walking in nature. Perhaps unintentionally but it is very child friendly place, our daughter crawled up and down all day long, climbing the wooden beams and enjoying it. Ruth went extra mile in her hospitality and arranged transport for us going back to Aachen to catch a train (having in mind there was a proper winter storm that day, we appreciated this even more).

We highly recommend visiting SenfMuhle as well, it is one of the main historical attractions in Monschau, the mustard is very tasty and the store offers a complete gastronomic experience.

We will be surely coming back here in the next years once our daughter is bigger and can enjoy the place more!

Wonderful place

  • 4 of 5

This is very pleasant and creatively renovated apartment in the picturesque town of Monschau. We stayed over one night with three young children and it was very comfortable space. The apartment is beautiful and well appointed, stylish, functional and clean, and it has everything one needs for longer stay as well. We loved hearing the bells and walking around the village through narrow streets and bridges over wild water.

The only reasons why we are giving four rather than five stars is that it was rather cold - which was an issue with young children on a frosty night in December - the house warmed up relatively quickly initially but the heating went off at some point in the evening unfortunately and given it is an old house with single glazed windows it was rather drafty and cold during the night... But this would not be an issue on a warmer night. Another caveat, the advertised WLAN (wi-fi) is actually a village WLAN that is extremely poor in strength (impossible to even send an email). Otherwise it is a wonderful place!

Excellent vacation apartment in the heart of Monschau!

  • 5 of 5

What a charming vacation rental with so much family history! We came for 1 night for the Christmas market and it was so magical. Everything is convenient except for parking during such a busy weekend. Tourist Information Office on main road provides discounts to parking garage/lots within walking distance but they advised that it was only worth it if you are staying 3 or more days; otherwise only €10/day. Be sure to walk up to the castle just up the road from the house, take the walking path across the river and take in the Panorama view from the ruins. Stop by the Historic Mustard Mill for mustards, jams, wine and spirits.
