Re: Shopping in Aachen
There is a lot of shopping to be done in Aachen..
1) Free WiFi is avalable in all bigger restaurants and Starbacks on the Markt, by the Castle & Catedral.
2) For the popular makes you mentioned chek "Lust for Life" and "Kaufhof" bith are walking distance of eachother...
On Adalbert Strasse (main shopping area) there are few good sports shops to choose from.

Travel Tips for Aachen
What would a city be, without it's greens
Aachen has a quite densily built centre. This also because it's an old town and therefor completed with alleys and narrow passages in between the houses. Still, it has held some green spaces in the centre and one of them is just behind the Ursulinen-Brunnen. A little green park, inviting many to relax, sit down or starts a ballgame on the grass. Besides the terraces a perfect place to gain some strength for the next few miles of exploration.

Not a fond memory but a memory nonetheless. The journey back from Aachen on the A44 was one Sabsi and I will not forget for a while....
We reluctantly left the happy VT meeting about 11.30pm to make our way back to Dusseldorf, tired by now as we had been up since early morning for the flight over. Well we'd only been on the A44for a short while when an accident happened jusrt a few cars ahead on us and that was it no movement on the road for over 3 hours. All we could see was the disco lights of the emergency services as fire engines, police and ambulances rushed past. Sabsi popped out for a few smokes and later we discovered there was petrol leaking onto the road :-SS. The traffic news said it wouldn't be cleared until about 5am so we settled down for a sleep in the car only to be rudely awakened by a tannoy saying we could turn around to the last exit. it was a strange experience motoring down the wrong way of the autobahn and it surprised me that it had taken so long before this was allowed to happen but we eventually made it back to Dusseldorf about 4.30am. Needless to say it was a late breakfast that day!
Aachen in western Germany, near the borders of Holland and Belgium, transforms it's historic center each year into a small festival setting in which hand made christmas ornaments of every imaginable description, hot spiced wine, sizzling wursts, deep fried fish, hot stuffed baked potatoes, belgian waffles and Aachener chocolate Printen, all combine to attract your attention, consume your Euro and ruin your appetite for dinner.
Site of Annual CHIO Equestrian Tournament
Every year, Aachen is the site of the CHIO Equestrian Tournament. During this tournament, equestrians compete in the five disciplines of jumping, dressage, four-in-hand diving, eventing, and vaulting. More information about this equestrian tournament can be found in the website link included with this tip.
For this annual event, the hotels in Aachen and the surrounding area are booked months in advance. Therefore, unless you are attending the tournament, you probably want to schedule your trip to Aachen at another time.
Because of this important event in the equestrian world, Aachen is sometimes referred to as the "City of Horses". The city promotes this moniker by having statues of horses throughout the city.
