The city hall is one of the main attractions in Aachen and presents itself in its over thousand year old history. The tours are informative and give an interesting overview of the history. The interior architecture is breathtaking in some places. As it is still used as city hall, this is where politics in Aachen happens, but also ceremonies, weddings... More

Standing in front of the Rathause (city-hall) in Aachen really lets you imagine about the old times of Charlemagne. During night times It looks really beatiful.

The Rathaus is a very ancient building. Along its stone walls are small old houses. It is very well illuminated at night. We didn't visit it inside.

A nice old square - with dramatic views of the hall from the outside. Was a bit disappointed by the inside - and certainly felt that the 5 Euros was a bit steep. Floodlit at night it makes a good picture.

Didn't go inside following the various reviews but it is worth walking in the square and appreciating its architecture. Go around the building, it is worth it. Originally built around 800 (the side towers) with many additions. The most noticeable gothic around mid 1300.

Amazing architecture. The view of the whole city from the top of the hall is also quite amazing and definitely worth a visit.

Because the famous cathedral of the city is nestled among a variety of buildings, the spacious square in front of the city hall is the main meeting point of Aachen. The impressive structure of the city hall and the big statue with the fountain on the market square's center create a marvelous cityscape.

This city hall lies very near the market and it looks very beautiful from outside. the entire family of mom, dad, and two kids pay only 12 euro.
