Römisch-Germanisches Museum

Everyday life in Roman Cologne

Colourful mosaics and frescoes, precious drinking glasses, gold jewellery, vessels in ceramics and metal, sculpture and inscriptions – they all bear witness to the life and history of the Romans in Cologne. Work on the one hand, and public, religious and private duties on the other often left little time for leisurely activities in people’s daily lives. Those who could afford it spared no expense in preparation for festivities and spent money on elegant clothes, jewellery and cosmetics. Merchants and craftsmen provided luxurious interior decoration. You will be stunned by the elegant furniture and the fine tableware. Exotic foodstuffs and spices were not uncommon on the tables of well-to-do citizens. But this lavish life-style was by no means attainable for everybody. Visitors are also introduced to the more simple forms of everyday life.

The guided tour gives an insight into the private life of the Romans and provides an idea of day-to-day life in Roman Cologne. The tour includes the themes "Culinaria Romana" and "Familia Romana".

Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum - Kulturen der Welt

Encounter with other cultures

They were typical representatives of their time – the explorer Wilhelm Joest and the diplomat Max von Oppenheim. Passionate collectors, they encountered unfamiliar, ‚alien‘ worlds, travelled to far-flung territories and newly conquered colonies and found their own individual approach to non-European cultures. Their lives and their collections, which have shaped the current face of the museum, provide access to the era of colonial expansion more than 100 years ago.
