  • Small museum exhibiting no audioguide in Italian. This is not a museum about Charlemagne, rather a museum that extends to you gg. Many things are mere copies

  • The permanent exhibition on the history of the town of Aachen in the Centre Charlemagne is really informative and multimedial very well prepared. It is equally good to visit for children and adults.

  • Despite a museography that will delight the children, the centre's collection is quite thin, and many exhibits are copies. Furthermore, if you do not speak German (which is, unfortunately, my case), some comments you are not accessible. On the other hand, small video animations can be followed in french. Anyway, I went out of the place a little disappointed with my visit.

  • Modern historical museum in the old town. Everything what you must know about Charlemagne.
  • Nice and modern museum showing the history of Aachen. Dein time to time they have extra exhibitions.
  • Fairly interesting. I did the audio guide in English but found it confusing to follow along. The things that were commented upon are not clearly indicated by numbers or anything like that, so it's not so easy to find what you supposed to be looking at.
  • Another one of the "must visit" places in Aachen. Aachen was, a mayor city in the Holy Roman Empire, resting place of Charlemange, and crowning place for other emperors. Student disscount aveliable and the personell is really nice
  • Do not let yourself be fooled by the size of the building, this is a one-room museum, 80% of exhibits are unrelated to Charlemagne, the audio guide is soporific, the bar sinister, and the shop stocked with 95% unrelated junk. It is clean, however.

Where to stay in Aachen

Most accommodations in Aachen sit very close to the historical core of the old spa town. Elegant period buildings house hotels with scores of additional features, including pools and health clubs, restaurants, and coffee lounges. Modern hotels tend to congregate around the road that circles the historical center, offering many of the same luxuries but in newer, purpose-built blocks. The center of town offers some backpacker-friendly hostels, giving you good access to main attractions and dormitory-style rooms.
