Once the capital of the Frankish Empire, Aachen is a city with a grand history and features impressive architecture and charming streets, combined with friendly, laid-back locals, creating a great atmosphere. Located in western Germany near the borders of Belgium and the Netherlands, Aachen is perfect for basing yourself while exploring the area with your rental car in Europe.
The centre of Aachen to this day features several buildings from early days and is a great place to start your sightseeing. Simply park your rental car near the heart of the city and set off to start exploring. Here you will find the 14th-century town hall, where many German kings were crowned, and next door is the town marketplace which comes alive with local vendors.
Not far from here you can visit the Couven Museum, which shows life in the area during the 17 to 1800s, and also the famous Aachen Cathedral, which built in the 9th century, is the oldest cathedral in Europe.
Jump in your hire car and drive a short distance southeast from here, to another great piece of architecture, Frankenberg Castle. Dating back to the 1200s, the castle is an impressive sight indeed, and also contains a museum with displays on the history of the area.
