City of Water
Aachen, a spa town, was once a prominent royal city where German kings were crowned and Charlemagne built his favorite residence. The city is packed with historical attractions, including medieval buildings, city gates, and elegant fountains. However, the impressive cathedral built on Charlemagne's orders in 796 remains the highlight on many a tourist itinerary. Inside the cathedral, once the largest such structure north of the Alps, you can find the earthly remains of Charlemagne himself. Aachen is a pleasant mix of historic grandeur and modern innovation, and home to a large, highly regarded university. Easily accessible from anywhere in the country, the city's transportation network includes convenient cross-border train services from Brussels and Paris.
