About Germany

Welcome to Aachen, a perfect destination to share your time between nature and culture. Staying in Aachen, you have to see the UNESCO listed cathedral, dating back to the 8th century.

It is world-famous to be the sanctuary of Charlemagne, where more than 30 german kings were crowned during some 600 years.

    Enjoyable journey | Adriana l. | 2015/07/20
    "The journey on the Thalys was a pleasant experience. The seats were very comfortable, the luggage space was sufficient and the breakfast service was excellent. The total feeling was one of commitment to customer care. And the total cost for 6 people was reasonable. "

    Great Single Connection | Mark d. | 2014/05/07
    "Apart from the Thalys running a little late meaning they stopped for a short time in Aachen, our connection, and we rushed into the wrong coach to make sure we got on board, it made a great travel option. Meal provided with the travel was another unexpected add on for the trip. "

    Superb Connection | Mark d. | 2014/05/07
    "Chose this option to have time to make a connection from our TGV from Paris. With the timeliness of the TGV we should not have worried about having the extra time. The benefit was it was only a two train journey. Comfortable and clean. Great no hassle way to travel within Europe. "
