made an error - any advice? arriving 1.45 am, 20 June from berlin & dusseldorf; departing 6,30am.

by drpimento

This bonehead didn't catch the layover in Aachen when he booked the trip. I'll be heading to Brussels. Any suggestions? All night coffee shop where I won't get hassled? Can't miss the train at 6.45. Don't want to wander the streets like a vagrant. Is there a nearby place to check in for a few hours? That accepts people so late at night? Can't believe I did this. Sign me -

Re: made an error - any advice?

Take bus from Hbf to the bus station on Peterstrasse, than walk across the street to "Lust for life" departmant store, about 30 meters on its right is bakery on the corner.
Turn to that street, Grosskolnstrasse, and just keep going up the street (is upward incline) till you hit Marktpaz and the Rathaus.
There on the plato you have few good coffe shops.
One is "Extrablat" Restaurant/coffe shop, than Tijuana,Starbacks and more.
Rathouse is worth hour or two looking at.
Behind the Rathouse is the Catedral, the famous Dom.
From there just take the street down & you will end up at Adalbertstrasse (main shopping st) from there at Shparkasse Bank, bus stop you can get bus back to the Hbf. (Main train station)
BTW opsite the main bus station on Peterstrasse there is the best icecream parlor in town called "Frigo"
please print the map from this link.
Aahen is great, have fun exploring it.

Travel Tips for Aachen

Visit the Old Town Hall on the...

by acw

Visit the Old Town Hall on the market place and ask at the desk to have a look into the white room. You will see portraits of the representatives who signed the peace of Aachen, among them the Lord of Sandwich. He never joined for supper during the conference, he always took a piece of bread with sausage, something that developed into what we call the sandwich today. Living next to this place, I always experience new memories of Aachen. It depends ont he season. Normally there are 4 seasons, but Aachen has 5. The fifth refers to Carnival and parties starting from Nov 11 until Ash Wednesday. The more than 35,000 students of the Aachen University play an important role here. Come and see in February, you will be astonished how bright a dark night can be.

Aachen has several fountains (17 I believe) which reflect the importance of thermal waters here. Everyone's favoutire, and mine too, though must surely be this delightful puppet fountain with its moving dolls representing all parts of Aachen life:
a woman (Aachen's famous farmers' market), a horseback rider (the annual international championship race), a fashion model (the garment industry), a clown (the city's annual carnival), a professor (the University) and a cardinal priest (who points to the medieval cathedral).

Aachener Printen!

by Roeffie

There are several so called Konditoreien who sell the local speciality called "Aachener Printen".

Molasses, flour, powdered and candied sugar as well as choice exotic spices lend this confectionery

its unique flavor.

It's a specific taste! In Holland I would refer the taste to "Peperkoek" Don't ask me for an english translation. I have no idea!

Klenkes Greeting

by BillNJ

The "Klenkes", the raised small finger of one hand, is the symbol with which the people reportedly greet one another abroad. This special greeting is in memory of the former needle industry which was based in Aachen. During the final quality control process, which was carried out by children, the needles were inspected by rolling them over with the small finger. The faulty, unusable needes were rejected. In 1970, the Aachen artist Hubert Löneke created a sculpture to memorialize this special Aachen greeting.

Tipping in Germany

by TinyTuck

For tipping: Never leave money on the table, it´s neither usual to just leave your money and go (someone might run after you thinking you didn´t pay), nor do Germans put their tip on the table. If you want to tip (10-15%, but it´s not really necessary depending on the location and on the service) give it to the waiter while paying. Either you give him/her a little more and tell him he can keep the change ('Stimmt so!') or you tell him the total price you want to pay and he will return you the difference.
