Founded under the Romans, you will also discover the Baroque city, the French occupation under Napoleon, the development of the spa town, the arrival of the Prussians and then the two world wars. A big congratulations to the museum team for top equipment with magnifying glasses to see the details of scrolls or engravings as well as the closets for medieval costumes, a reference in museography. Intelligent videos and animations enrich a collection of sometimes unexpected objects. A good visit to understand the city. bravo.

An outstanding museum. Exhibits well displayed and labeled. Displays of all kinds, with a variety of media from traditional to digital quite varied, but never gimmicky. Six euro tickets. Do not fail to pay the two extra euros for the audio guide. It adds a wealth of additional background and cultural context. Well explains the long shadow of Charlemagne's life and influence, but also the phoenix-like history of Aachen.
The most important walking tour would be to follow the Route Charlemagne, which begins at Centre Charlemagne. A quick tour this is needed to understand Charlemagne and the city!
