The City Hall of Aachen is a very impressive building and the surroundings with the marketplace and the "old city" is the place to be in Aachen. Definitely worth a visit is the Christmas Market around the City Hall in December.

These guys know how to maintain and conserve their heritage. Beautiful architecture, well maintained with stately Central hall. Shopping, eateries, pubs all around. Cobbled streets.

Nice historical building, was build on the same spot where Charlemagne’s castle use to stand. Few interesting paintings, but nothing special.

Pretty and photogenic. By day there's a lot of detail, by night it's beautifully lit up. That's it really, I need to write 100 characters to publish it

We didn't get a chance to dine there but it was very busy and is very popular Google it or find it on Tripadvisor and book accordingly. Have a good time in Aachen.
