The Centre Charlemagne: where Aachen’s history is brought to life.
In the heart of the former palace district of Charlemagne the Great, the Centre Charlemagne - Neues Stadtmuseum Aachen (“new city museum”) presents the city’s history in a lively way, for children and adults alike. This is a great place for families with children, where visitors can immerse themselves in the Carolingian period by trying out all kinds of activities in the history laboratory. How heavy is a chain mail coat? How was the ink for the impressive handwriting made? The starting point of the “Route Charlemagne” is definitely worth a visit!
