  • The best relaxing place in city center. Always kids are playing here with their parents..
  • This "brunnen" are all over downtown Aachen. This pupets are nice. Plus, you'll always see pedestrian comedy along this walk. Totally recomended.
  • In Aachen, there are several fountains and sculptures all over the city, but especially so in the city center. The above is one of them, in Krämerstrasse, a small shopping street between the Rathaus and the Cathedral. Obviously, a favorite place for tourists, Der Puppenbrunnen (The Puppet Fountain), with its many moveable parts, captivates children and adults alike. The history of Aachen is depicted by figures of a knight, his horse, a bishop, a professor, a harlequin, and various carnival masks, and finally, a crowing rooster on the top.
  • A beautiful piece of work. The puppets even articulate.
  • Very interesting how it is made

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.
