Aachen, the city of the Emperor Charlemagne, where research looks to the future and Europe’s at home, offers you a warm welcome with its international flair, 2,000 years of history, a rich cultural heritage, wonderful natural surroundings and people who really know how to live life. Germany’s most westerly city, with a population of around 250,000 drawn from 160 nations, nestles up against the border with Belgium and the Netherlands. Its universities and colleges, research facilities and high-tech businesses are making themselves felt, in no small part, on the present and the future of our city.
