Aachen Christmas Markets
With approximately 125 stalls on the squares and streets surrounding the Cathedral and Town Hall the area is transformed into a stunning Christmas City. Germany’s closest Christmas market to the UK, Aachen is best known for Aachen Printen, a kind of ginger bread, potato fritters and marzipan bread.
The Aachen Cathedral is a 'must see' attraction and looks even more spectacular during the Christmas festivities. In addition, Suermondt Ludwig Museum and Couven Museum are popular excursions for school groups.
