About Aachen

Aachen is a historic city located in the westernmost part of Germany, near the borders of Belgium and the Netherlands. With a population of over 240,000, it is the westernmost major city in Germany and a significant cultural and economic center of the region. Aachen’s rich history dates back to the Roman Empire, where it served as a spa town due to its natural hot springs. In the Middle Ages, Aachen was the coronation site for 31 German kings and the location of the famous Aachen Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Today, Aachen is a bustling university town, home to RWTH Aachen University, one of Germany’s leading technical universities. The city’s vibrant culture and stunning architecture attract visitors from all over the world.
