Quality of life Where people really know how to live life

Aachen has real international flair. One special aspect of the city is that it feels big, even though it’s relatively small. There are always new parts to discover. Every square has a unique atmosphere. There’s always something going on in the center – art, antiques, the Christmas market, music and food festivals – nearly every weekend. It’s possible to find groceries from nearly every part of the world, and the restaurants are great, with something for everyone. The joie-de-vivre in Aachen is something special. You can see that the people here enjoy life!
