Hans L÷wenstein House Aachen / Germany description:

This Gothic corner house was finished around 1344. It's original function is not clear : it can f.e. has been a house, a bar, a hotel.... The name is a family name: in 1478 c certain Ida von L÷wenstein lived here.

Because this was a stone,this building was one of the only surviving the large Aachen city fire from 1656.

Nowadays, the eldest Aachener Carnaval Group houses here.

The fake kcrenels and the corbeling out turret give a rahter military impression to the building, contradicted by the large cross-bar frame windows.

On the corner there is a gilt statue representing the Saint Nepomuk.
