The city of Aachen

Aaachen cityCopyright: ©davis/

Aachen is situated in an area, where the three countries of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands meet. The source of the city’s fame is the Aachen water. Since Roman times, the hot springs at Aachen have been channeled into baths. It is heated by the Eifel volcanos up to a temperature of 74°C and is known to be one of the hottest volcanic spring water in Central Europe.

The Emperor’s City is a popular travel destination. This is not just because of its favorable geographical position but also due to its large variety of art and culture, elegant shops and pubs. At the heart of the City lies the Aachen Dom (Cathedral). In 1978 this was the first German building to be included in the Unesco list of World Heritage Sites. The Dom is proud to house the most precious treasures north of the Alps. These can be seen in the Cathedral Treasury. Not far from the Cathedral is the Gothic Town Hall. Its facade is richly decorated with countless figures that remind people of the German coronations that took place in Aachen. A sweet speciality has spread Aachen’s fame across the globe: The “Printen” are made from a kind of dark and spicy ginger bread and can be bought in many shops in the city.

According to Forbes Travel Guide 2014 Aachen belongs to the five top travel destinations in Europe!
