Museum exhibition and the seat of the city mayor
The historic rooms in this impressive building contain an interactive exhibition. You might even see the mayor of Aachen at his desk.
A testament to the centuries
The historic façade is already an indication of the building’s glorious history: 50 rulers, 31 of whom were crowned in Aachen, surround the central figures of Charlemagne, Jesus and Pope Leo III. In the elaborately decorated rooms, too, the story of the city hall, which was built on the historic site of the great palace hall of Emperor Charlemagne, is brought to life. In the coronation hall, where formerly the rulers took a meal after being crowned, copies of the imperial regalia remind us of this glorious era today.
The city hall of Aachen is wheelchair accessible. An elevator is available at the entrance. To use the elevator, please contact the staff via the intercom system at the door (to the right of the stairwell) of the Marienturm. Furthermore, all toilets in the town hall are wheelchair accessible. Guide dogs are allowed.

Experience Aachen life here
The smell of coffee, fresh fish or warm rolls lingers in the air, and next to the Karlsbrunnen fountain, a bride dances on the famous Aachen cobblestones in her white dress. Experience city life in Aachen against the impressive backdrop of Aachen city hall! Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Marktplatz square does justice to its name and hosts the popular Aachen weekly market.
From the market square, you can reach all the attractions of the city by foot, or simply spend some time over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in one of the many cafés and restaurants and enjoy watching life in the city pass you by.
