The spa town of Aachen is located in the North Rhine-Westphalia state of Germany. It is the westernmost town in Germany, sharing borders with both the Netherlands and Belgium.
Steeped in history, the town was once the chosen coronation location for German kings and queens. The beautiful Aachen Cathedral is an absolute must-see; it's the oldest cathedral in Northern Europe and classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The cathedral was built under the orders of Charlemagne, and was the tallest cathedral north of the Alps during that time.
Hire a car from Aachen railway station and take the time to explore the stunning city and surrounding areas which are rich in history and culture.
In Aachen, the city itself has many sights of interest. Head into the Old Town and be sure to visit the Cathedral and city hall. If you're lucky and are visiting in December, the Christmas market is a truly magical experience.
Renting a car from Aachen ensures you'll have more freedom to fit in everything you want to see. A particular highlight of your visit should be the Grashaus, a non-religious medieval building located at the fish market. It is one of the oldest buildings in the city and acts as the city archive, storing historical records.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
