How the radiation pioneer lived | Birthplace of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen

While the neighbouring German Röntgen Museum looks at the scientific work of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen, visitors to his birthplace can find out all about the personality behind the achievements. An exhibition on Röntgen as a person awaits you on the ground floor. Meeting and conference rooms are available upstairs for discussions. Last but not least, there is an apartment on the top floor of the house, which offers a home from home to researchers and guests of the German Radiological Society, the city of Remscheid and the state.

Good to know: A tour is only possible by prior arrangement. More information can be found on the website.
