Rhenish cheerfulness

A relaxed cheerful spirit, Rhenish hospitality and a passion for sociability – that's the mentality of the "Öcher" people.

Entertainment in its pure form

Aachen offers a wide variety of events throughout the year: This may include the Wine Festival, the Aachen September Special with many live acts, street food festivals, the "Öcher Bend", carnival, the CHIO, cathedral jumping and, last but not least, the Christmas market – here you can meet old acquaintances and make new friends. The pub culture is also something to be proud of. Nowhere in Germany, except in Berlin, is the density of pubs higher than here.

Oh, sweet home Aachen

Aachen is famous for its Printen – regardless of whether hard Printen, soft Printen, herb Printen, Printen with chocolate, almonds or tipsy Printen, Printen hearts beat faster in this city.

Aachen is Europe – The frontier city to three countries, also called “Dreiländereck”

From gastronomic excursions à la Frikandel or Belgian fries, all the way to three languages and five regional cultures: Europe is at home in Aachen.

Simply Oche...

Strolling through the alleys of the old town, eating ice cream at the Katschhof with a view of the cathedral and the Gothic city hall, enjoying crumble rolls in the numerous bakeries and cafés or the panoramic view over Aachen on the Lousberg, while you let your soul dangle in the hammocks – Aachen offers great variety!
