About Rathaus Aachen, Aachen

This wonderful stately palace was built to serve as both a centre for civic administration, and as a celebration hall for the German empire’s grandest festivals. Its renown was such that it became a model for many other Flemish halls. Destroyed by fire and also by bombing during WWII multiple times, it has always been reconstructed even more gloriously than before. Highlights are:

  • The museum exhibition that explains the art and history of the building.
  • The Granusturm tower, that may not be entered, but can be viewed from the outside.
  • The tower spires.
  • The beautiful vaulted ceilings.
  • The many paintings.

Check out the curious fountain statue, Puppenbrunnen, on the path between the Town Hall and the Cathedral.

  • Really nice building definitely worth a visit! Provides you with small glimpses of the cities history and some of the roles and how it relates to the city hall. Not just a building of civic function but a true centre to the town both historically and culturally.

  • Very old, Very beautiful. Must see if you are a tourist.

  • Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition inside this building. Shows a lot of original medieval pieces and the history of this great German city.

  • An amazing place to be at during the September festival in Aachen ...Open air concerts with beers what more do you want ;)... The structure is beautiful and looks great during night ...

  • Beautiful area and very nice for walking
