Aachen is the westernmost city of Germany, located along the borders to Belgium and the Netherlands, about 60 km (40 mi) west of Cologne. Aachen’s geographic location in the direct vicinity to Belgium and the Netherlands and its close proximity to several other European countries including Britain, France, and Luxembourg make Aachen a truly European place. Aachen’s predominant economic focus on science, engineering, information technology, and related sectors together with RWTH Aachen University make up the city’s international flair. As Aachen was a favoured residence of Charlemagne, and later the place of coronation of the German kings, and a spa place since the Roman times, it offers many places and attractions to explore.
