I was here on a rainy afternoon, and the square around the Rathaus was well kept and clean. The building was beautiful, and the guides were able to help me understand what and why the building I was waling through existed.

We saw the Karl Charlemagne exhibition and it was very interesting and informative. Very good value as our tickets gave us entry to three exhibitions.

This was the outstanding pat of the Charlemagne 2014 exhibitions. Fluidly structured so you didn't get stuck in a queue and with some breathtaking AV effects that really made the exhibits come alive.

The building is amazing. The evident gothic style of it, makes it very impressive. The building is in a big square with places where someone can also sit to eat something.

On the square in front of the Rathaus there are small metal 'stations' where you can see how the Rathaus was build and restored over the centuries. Very nice building, with rich historical background. The symbol of Aachen. No entrance fee.

Really interesting museum with English audio guide, giving a great idea of what the Charlemagne phenomenon is all about. Worth booking a combined ticket with other bits of the Charlemagne route
