House number 33 on Kavainerstraße was built in the 19th century for the Dutch painter BC Koekkoek

The house is now the B.C. Koekkoek House, and shows works by the artist and his students. Built between 1845 and 1848 B.C. Koekkoek House is one of the few preserved artist houses from the 19th century in Europe and is one of the great treasures on the Lower Rhine.

The B.C. Koekkoek House reflects in a unique way the spirit of its builder, the Dutch painter Barend Cornelis Koekkoek, and shows, in addition to his own works, the work of members of his extensive family as well as his companions and students. With authentic furnishings, the B.C. Koekkoek House also gives an impression of 19th century home decor.
