Walking Tour Aachen-Old Town: Steeped in tradition and modernity
Join us on a culinary adventure through the historic Old Town of Aachen and experience Germany’s westernmost city. A fascinating city with more than 2,000 years of history, Aachen is a world-famous spa town and home to not only the majestic Aachen Cathedral, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, but also distinctive shops and culinary establishments just waiting to be explored by you.

Our gastronomic journey through the heart of the Old Town of Aachen kicks off with an impressive part of history as our tour begins at one of the two remaining gates of the original city wall of Aachen, which itself dates back to the 14th century. From there, we will move through the lively student quarter of Pontstrasse up to the old market and town hall. Interesting anecdotes and beguiling facts about the rich history of the city will enhance the excursion as we make our way to the striking Aachen Cathedral, one of the oldest cathedrals in Europe, and one of the first 12 landmarks to be declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Stroll the charming streets around the cathedral and learn the special stories of Aachen’s fountains as you come across many historic buildings and discover the rich city history that will give you a deeper insight and glimpse into a time which has long passed. Top off the enchanting voyage with impeccable culinary delicacies and fascinating insider tips and you get to know a whole new side of Aachen!

You will find an exciting range of culinary stations on your tour, such as:

  • a retro candy shop
  • a sushi restaurant with spectacular creations
  • a French gourmet shop with original French cheese and quiche
  • Aachen's oldest tea shop with the original Aachener Printen tea
  • a traditional butcher shop
  • a pasta restaurant with freshly made pasta
  • a café with Belgian pastries

For most, the food samples are enough to constitute a full lunch. Please inform us of any special dietary requirements (vegetarian, diabetic etc). We will try to tailor our tour accordingly. 
Please Note: The tour is not suitable for vegans, people with lactose or gluten intolerance, or those with nut allergies.
