City highlights

A charming historical city - awarded by the Unesco World Heritage
Aachen is a medium-sized city with a rich history dating back to Roman times. The city's medieval landmark, Aachen Cathedral (8th/9th century) - awarded as part of Unesco's World Heritage List - coins the city center. Many cafes, food markets and pubs make Aachen so livable.
Located in the Heart of Europe
Aachen is located directly at the so-called “Border Triangle” - where frontiers of Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium meet each other. This makes the city truly international and multilingual. And quickly you are not only in Cologne (70 km) but also in a whole series of great cities like Brussels, Amsterdam or Frankfurt (all max. 200 km away.).
Aachen - the perfect city for students
Aachen is a real university city. With more than 50,000 students, about every fifth inhabitant is enrolled at a the RWTH, the FH or one of the other smaller institutes in Aachen. This makes the infrastructure for students perfect: The distances are short, the public transport is well developed and as a student, you will thrive to make friends quickly...
