Ludwig Schuncke (1810 – 1834) was the closed childhood friend of Robert Schumann.

In the Schunke archives – besides non-musical art and subject areas – especially material of the 25 people artists and musician family and their enironment are archived: The focus lies on romance, in some cases also later until presence.

This allows, depending on the topic, to add new mosaic pieces to already familiar. A chamber music concert series "Archiv-Konzerte" inter alia events (as for example coproduction in of exhibitions), most of them located in Baden-Baden, supplement the internal arichival work to the outside. 

The „Schumann-Plus-Pflege“ is put in the spotlight, including the maintenace of contacts to other Schumann organisations and related assoiciations.
