About Aachen

www.medien.aachen.de / Andreas Herrmann

Aachen is surrounded by fields, woods and hills. At its portals - closeby where three countries meet, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium - you find the nature reserves of the Ardennes and the Eifel. From Roman times there have been good connections with the rest of Europe. Today, the town is reachable by motorways from Cologne and Dusseldorf, Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris. The town is a real pleasure for the pedestrian. The health cures and the conferences are never far apart, and there is always a worthwhile diversion.

Everywhere in Aachen you will meet historical heritage of the city's imposing past. All the same Aachen combines its tradition with modern times. Not only Charlemagne and Casanova enjoyed the pleasant thermal baths, already the Romans used them to ease the aches and pains.

Education, study and scientific research are in the focus of Aachen. A network of institutes for research and development has grown, which maintain close links with industry and commerce. The German University of Excellence, the Rheinisch Westfälische Technische Hochschule, RWTH Aachen University, covers numerous academic activities in engineering, natural sciences, medicine, economy, and humanities. The University of Applied Sciences educates engineers, scientists and designers. The Catholic Hochschule Nordrhein-Westfalen concentrates on the social sciences and social pedagogy. At the Aachen department of the 'Hochschule für Musik' of Cologne, musicians study and start out on the road to success, many beginning their careers at Aachen's theatre. All together, Aachen is home of more than 60.000 students, which give the city a young and international flair.
