Welcome to Aachen


Today, Aachen is still a quintessentially international city that has a unique appeal because of its location in the border triangle with the Netherlands and Belgium. Charlemagne’s legacy lives on in the stunning Dom, which in 1978 became Germany’s first Unesco World Heritage Site, as well as in the new Centre Charlemagne and the Route Charlemagne walking trail.

Aachen has a lively vibe that's further enhanced by a large student population.
