project café
Sundays, from April until the end of September Noon–6pm, the museum café in the churchyard invites you to stop off for refreshments and some small snacks. Find updated information on our website. Around the old market place of Kornelimünster you are coming across serveral cafés and restaurants for lunch or dinner.

The little town of Kornelimünster offers a number of attractions. For instance, the gothic abbey church is well worth a visit, as is the walk over to the old St. Stephanus parish church up on the hill. From there, you have a wonderful view over the entire town and the surrounding landscape. The medieval marketplace offers the perfect setting for a relaxed lunch or dinner, or maybe just a quiet drink.

You can begin longer or shorter hikes in Kornelimünster. Art enthusiasts can follow up their visit in the Kunsthaus with an excursion to the Ludwig Forum for International Art in Aachen, or the Neuer Aachener Kunstverein. But maybe you would prefer to continue your journey to Monschau (30 Min. by car) or end your evening on the Rathausplatz in Aachen (20 Min. by car)? Find more information at:
