We did not have time to go inside, but the building's exterior is very impressive. Very reminiscent of the Grand Place in Brussels. Worth spending a few minutes walking around the outside and admiring the architecture.

I came upon the Rathaus while wandering around Aachen's streets, waiting to get into the Cathedral. I really liked the details of the front face.

Great way to start exploring Charlemagne and his history. The building is interesting, and the explanations and guide book are very informative. Plus it's open on Mondays when the museums are closed!

The Rathaus is a beautiful building from the outside, which of course makes you curious about the inside. While the inside was also beautiful, we were still very disappointed. They charge 6 euro per person (no discounts for the elderly, only for students) and all...More

This is a must see from the outside while in Aachen. It is extremely close to the cathedral. The inside visit isn't bad but only OK but not too expensive and worth doing if you have 15-30 minutes to spare. They have some very nice...More

We didn't get a chance to dine there but it was very busy and is very popular Google it or find it on Tripadvisor and book accordingly. Have a good time in Aachen.
