Enjoy a great view or hang out a little? This works wonderfully on the Lousberg in Aachen.

The Lousberg is the highest elevation in Aachen's city center and a true gem for everyone who likes to be out in the fresh air.

Holiday feelings arise especially when the weather is nice. Then it's not just joggers who climb the 264 meter high mountain. Many families spend their time together on one of the playgrounds and walkers enjoy the wonderful view over the Soers. Do you just want to unwind on a cozy Sunday? The popular hammocks on the northern slope of the Lousberg have been inviting you to do so since 2008! Do you want to find out more about the Lousberg?

The app of the same name brings the history of Aachen's local mountain to life with the help of photos, videos and historical maps. A hiking route with waypoints and explanations is also available - free of charge! Download iOS
