The 2000-year old imperial city of Aachen is a cosmopolitan town with historical flair. Located at the heart of the border triangle between Germany, Netherlands, and Belgium, Aachen sits right in the middle of a region worth exploring. The town itself is known, among other things, for being the imperial capital under Charles the Great (who was laid to rest here), and for the Aachener Printen, a variety of gingerbread originating from here.
Here, in the heart of Europe, you will find a world of excitement. There's a lot to explore in the Northern Black Forest region: magnificent countryside, art museums, impressive palaces, hiking and cycling trails, picturesque vineyards, as well as wonderful culinary delights.
