Hello, I`m Aachen.
Glad you are here.
My diary is thick and heavy. I've experienced, participated and seen so much and I’m quick to get into a chatty mood. Surely you can understand that, right? But don't worry! You certainly won't get bored on a walk with me. Even the Romans loved my hot springs! And Charlemagne quickly realized that he could rule an entire kingdom from within me. How grateful I am to him today that he had this magnificent cathedral built which, in my opinion, is rightfully considered a World Heritage Site. And that's not a boast! But please, don't reduce me to just my past. Because even today, I definitely still cut a good figure! Oh, and please let me tell you the following: Here, you’ll meet more than just engineering students.
How would I describe myself? young & wild.
You're only as old as you feel, right? I’m definitely more than just alive and kicking! Because behind my history-charged façade, there are quite a few corners that also make the here and now quite attractive. May I start things off by inviting you to an ice cream? Next item on the agenda: Whatever you feel like! Interested in enjoying the sun shining on a green meadow in the shade of the castle? How about going on a photo tour? After all, the pastel facades of old buildings in my district of Frankenberg are quite pretty to look at. And then there is this one, a very special building that has blossomed into a real shooting star. Stay tuned – isn’t that what people say these days? I really have some sights in store for you and my numerous cafés and restaurants are also happy to get to know you. So, feel free to take a little more time for me, you won't regret it!
