This gallery is remarkable. We had heard that they had a good collection of art from Germany and the low countries, but that description didn't really do it justice. They have all sorts of works, including some excellent Italian and Spanish paintings as well. The...More

If you like art and history this Museum is a must in Aachen. Located in a very old villa it shows very interesting exhibits.

We went there for the special photo exhibition but realized that the house itself is really grand and interesting to see, and the medieval sculpture collection is fantastic.

Located somewhat out of the historical centre in a mansion, it receives only a fraction of the visitors it should. The plus point is that it is very quiet and no crowding. Parts of he mansion itself are worth seeing, but it is especially the...More

Lots of medieval sculptures and oil paintings from the 16/17/18 Cents. Some modern stuff as well. If you like art then this is worth a visit - if not then I would suggest giving it a miss. The lay out is a bit confusing -...More

I enjoyed very much my visit here. It is very quiet and does not seem to receive a lot of visitors. I came across some lovely paintings (including a beautiful Cranach and a wonderful Botticelli). The interior of the building itself is a joy to...More

Carolus Thermen Bad Aachen on Monday (2 Replies)
Hello, I need some advice regarding Spa visit in Aachen. Our family of four (my husband, myself, 27 y.o. son and 15 y.o. daughter) will visit Aachen for a day while driving form Dusseldorf to Bitburg area, where we'll stay for two nights. Prior to Aachen , we'll have a lot of sightseeing planed for Dusseldorf and Cologne. Certainly, when in Aachen, we'd like to visit Cathedral and do a self-guided tour of Aachen historical center (Marktplatz, the Grashaus, Town Hall (Rathaus) etc.) for...More

A popular and well-liked Thermen complex with the swimming areas downstairs and the sauna complex (with some small pools) upstairs. Downstairs is textile, upstairs nude. Monday is one of the quieter days. Explanatory notices are only in German.
