60 minutes of the audio guide that adds so much to the rooms. Especially interesting to learn about Napolean and the French influence.

We didn't get a chance to dine there but it was very busy and is very popular Google it or find it on Tripadvisor and book accordingly. Have a good time in Aachen.
