Aachen - a good choice

Aachen is not only an excellent place to study and live, but it is also an exceptional host venue for meetings. At the heart of the city there is the large conference and congress centre, Eurogress, as well as numerous meeting hotels and conference locations. Home to 255,000 residents, Aachen is easy to get around and pedestrian friendly. The city has an international flair as it borders with the Netherlands and Belgium. The high number of students – just under one in four people in Aachen studies at a university here – increases the city’s appeal.
