Aachen is located in North Rhine-Westphalia, close to the Belgian and Dutch borders.
As the westernmost major city in Germany, it has a multitude of sights to offer students, families, young and old.
The city’s ideal location – in the west of North Rhine-Westphalia, on the edge of the Eifel and the High Fens and very close to the cities of Cologne, Düsseldorf and Bonn – makes Aachen the perfect starting point for city trips and excursions into nature.
Due to its border location “in the heart of Europe”, there are numerous cultural and especially architectural influences from the neighbouring regions, the Belgian-Dutch area.
The city’s landmark, Aachen Cathedral, together with the cathedral treasury, was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978 as the first German and second cultural monument in the world.
