The city of Aachen has an appealing atmosphere. It is located in the tri-border region of Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands, and is Germany’s most “European” city. Aachen has an excellent location and is not far away from many major European cities such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Cologne, and Paris.

Aachen has a rich European history (it was once the capital of Carolus Magnus, Charlemagne), a unique inviting charm, a rich academic life with special focus on science and technology.
