Easy to reach and near the border
The fact that Aachen is located right in the heart of Europe – in the triangle of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands – has first-class transport connections and a modern infrastructure, makes it an ideal as well as an attractive congress and conference city in Germany and Western Europe. With a quarter of a million residents, Aachen is one of the major cities in Germany. Nevertheless, the paths in the compact inner city centre are short and its atmosphere is youthful, relaxed and cosmopolitan. Aachen is wonderfully accessible for event planners and visitors, whether by train, airplane, car or bus.
