​As one of the oldest buildings in Aachen, the walls of the Grashaus have a lot to tell.

It served as the city's town hall and prison for a long time! So it's no wonder that the Grashaus was integrated into the Charlemagne route as a European station. From the outside, the historic appearance of the Grashaus has been preserved. Inside, however, students in particular can learn a lot about Europe at the interactive media stations.
