Aachen is a medium sized city with a population of about 250 000. It it much influenced by its very big technical university; about 10% of the population are students.
The city has a nice, partially medieval looking city center and an early medieval dome. Among the several cultural offerings are: an opera house and a fairly big museum of contemporary art. Due to the large student population there is a vivid night life (especially pubs) but nothing especially wild and strange.
---A night life expert should skip in here and prove me wrong.---
Aachen is located direcly at the dutch and belgian borders. Some dutch villages are even defacto suburbs of Aachen!
The surrounding of Aachen is fairly rural, especially in the south west with a landscape of woody hills and lakes (Eifel), and a big swamp (Hohes Venn), see also Roetgen.
Top Things to See and Do
