That old german restaurant feeling with everything inside from some other time. All of the menu is really great so I cannot really point out anything. Maybe the schnitzel with mushrooms and cream sauce was the best for me. Also try the mussels or snails if they are on menu. Btw. you also have the english menu available. Staff and... More

We had dinner twice at Am Knipp because it was so good. The potato soup was excellent. The schnitzel with mushrooms and cream sauce was the best I have had in many visits to Germany. Don't miss Sunday night at Am Knipp because that's spare rib night. The owner and her daughter were wonderful hosts. Am Knipp is definitely on... More

Traditional german ambience restaurant. If you are visiting aachen, you should try this. Their roast beef with onion cream sauce is perfectly cooked, juicy and tender.

Traditional German restaurant that dates back in 1698. Traditional cuisine, traditional deceration, good service. We visited Saturday night without having a reservation, but luckily there was a table left. Only complain the noisy environment.

This place has a great atmosphere, illustrious history, tasty Gaffel kölsch beer and wonderful tiled interior - but don't go here for the food. Admittedly our soup starter was palatable enough but the main courses!! My wife's Flammkuchen was stodgy and dull. My Sauerbraten tasted as if the chef had tipped an entire packet of cinnamon in the sauce, then... More

This is a small place on a small street and is reminiscent of former times. As it was established in 1698 that is not a wonder. the hosts are very accommodating. The sauerbraten was fantastic. The baked camembert was excellent. If you like traditional german food this is a must visit.
