Do & See

Most of the sights you are going to visit in Aachen are parts of the monuments that Charles the Great once created magnificently. Still there is a unique museum culture attracting multinational artists and a vivid theatre performing classical plays and contemporary interpretations as well as operas. Special about Aachen is also the traditional Christmas Market in December. Then the squares around the cathedral are full of different brilliant wooden houses where you can buy presents, food, Printen and certainly glühwein.
