Salon & Metzgerei Schmitz im MOK

"Dear guests,
unfortunately we close our cafe to 26.7.2020.
We thank you very much for your long lasting loyalty and the beautiful moments together. You are welcome to continue visiting us in our shops on Aachener Straße or in the Schmitz on Dürener Straße.
We wish you all the best. See you soon!
Your Schmitzworld Team :-)"

If you want to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city without going too far, this is where you want to be. In the foyer of the Museum of East Asian Art on the ‘Aachener Weiher’ you can relax in the ‘Schmitz’. In the elegant 1977 building by Le Corbusier’s pupil Kunio Maekawa, enjoy the specialities of our kitchen and bakery. With a view of the Japanese Pool the tea tastes twice as good. In summer on the covered terrace, in winter in the cosy warmth while still enjoying the view through the museum’s panorama windows.
