The House

A living monument - an inspiring place for research and science

With the acquisition of the birthplace of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen in the heart of the Lennep Old Town, the German Radiological Society has paved the way to create a dignified space at the place of origin of the world famous scientist for his comprehensive personal inheritance, and to establish an inspiring science conference.

The importance of the Röntgen House is rooted in the impressive personality of Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen as a researcher, and the global use of his pioneering discovery. Until now, space and context needed to adequately present the unique archive materials of the Röntgen inheritance were missing.

A public exhibition on the ground floor, accessible free of charge, meeting and conference rooms upstairs, and a guest and fellows apartment on the top floor make the house a new attraction and a point of reference for both professional scientists and the general public.
