train to bus connection

by stella47

I will be connecting in Aachen, having taken the train from Koln to Aachen, and then wish to take the bus from Aachen to Eupen Belgium. I will have only 20 minutes. Is it possible to buy my bus ticket on the bus, rather than at the bus station ticket window? I am worried that I might not have sufficient time. (DB Bahn says it takes 6 minutes to walk from the train station to the bus station)>

I have never seen a bus station in Germany having a ticket window or machine. So you must be able to buy a ticket on the bus, don't worry. And 20 minutes are really enough time to reach the bus station, you can even find an information or ticket desk in the station (the train, not the bus one) to ask about a ticket.
By the way, I went to Eupen with a train, if you somehow miss your bus - there is always the alternative with a train (but I think it requires a change).

This may even be your only option. As this bus is operated by the Belgian TEC and does travel beyond the AVV regional public transport network.

Bus #14 to Eupen departs from bus stop 1 (Haltestelle 1). Right in front of the station.

From your train. Not from the station. From the station exit you won't need even 1 minute.

Vihren and Abalada:

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your help! It looks like I'll have no problem.

Travel Tips for Aachen

St Stephanus

by Mariajoy

There are lots of statues and fountains around Aachen, some quite ancient and some more recent.

This is HI Stephanus, Koenig von Ungarn (979-1038) (by Prof. Imre Varga). Unfortunately I don't have any more info right now but I shall update this tip when I have found out a little more about him.

Fat Baby with Fish

by Mariajoy

There was a large crowd gathered round this statue listening to their tour guide... I missed the talk so I don't have any info about "Fat Baby with Fish". He must be historically relevant to the city of Aachen, so I shall research further!!

Ok... so now I know I shall pass this fascinating info on to you, dear reader!

The "FBWF" is situated in the Fischmarkt where for centuries fish from local rivers and ponds were sold. The statue stands opposite the Taufkapelle (Baptistry) where, up until Napoleonic times all Aachen children were baptised.
"Et Fisch -Pueddelche" is the name of this fountain designed by Lederer at the beginning of the 20th C. "Pueddelche" is a nickname for a small child in Aachen. At the time Lederer designed this fountain it would have been unthinkable for the prudish, puritanical towns people to have a statue of a naked man in their streets! So, instead, he erected a statue of a naked baby holding two fish to represent the fish market and no one was offended.

It seems that in the past this statue often disappeared and has at times even been guarded by policemen!! My fondest memory will always be the Kakao!

A relaxing city

by Sjalen

I have no particular memory. Aachen is just a city I feel extremely cozy and comfortable in. People stop and talk to you and there are interesting historical things to see. One thing I am VERY impressed with however, is the cathedral. It is my favourite church building so far because of its non traditional almost byzantine interior. Don't miss it!

You have to try the German Waffels!

by SMILLA76

Thicker than the French or British pancake, the German waffel is the twin sisters of the Norwegian vaffel... Hmmm... still could not decide which one is tastier so I keep trying both over and over again...

The Christmas markets are full of stands where you can buy them and they smell oh! so nice... You've just got to have them!

Carnaval, crazy days here

by Pavlik_NL

Like in Limburg (NL), Belgium and these parts of Germany, Carnaval is the biggest festival each year. Aachen is famous for it's carnaval and is cometing seriously with mayor blasts like Köln (Cologne) and Düsseldorf. People dress up in the most original costumes and dance, drink, eat and party for almost five days in a row.
