Welcome to Aachen, a perfect destination to share your time between nature and culture. Staying in Aachen, you have to see the UNESCO listed cathedral, dating back to the 8th century.
It is world-famous to be the sanctuary of Charlemagne, where more than 30 german kings were crowned during some 600 years. Strolling along the streets, you may meet the emblem of Aachen, the Elise’s fountain, dating back from 1827. For game lovers, enjoy the casino, surrounded by a park and housed by the old "new hydrothepeutic cure establishment".
Indeed, Aachen is famous for its warm springs, the warmest at the north of the Alps mountains.

- "Enjoyable journey" Adriana l. 20/07/2015
The journey on the Thalys was a pleasant experience. The seats were very comfortable, the luggage space was sufficient and the breakfast service was excellent. The total feeling was one of commitment to customer care. And the total cost for 6 people was reasonable.
- "Great Single Connection" Mark d. 07/05/2014
Apart from the Thalys running a little late meaning they stopped for a short time in Aachen, our connection, and we rushed into the wrong coach to make sure we got on board, it made a great travel option. Meal provided with the travel was another unexpected add on for the trip.
- "Superb Connection" Mark d. 07/05/2014
Chose this option to have time to make a connection from our TGV from Paris. With the timeliness of the TGV we should not have worried about having the extra time. The benefit was it was only a two train journey. Comfortable and clean. Great no hassle way to travel within Europe.
- "Very comfortable trip" . 15/04/2014
Helpful staff, very tasty (and free) drinks and snacks - which I did not expect - and comfortable seating!
- "Expensive trip" Chooi Woon y. 08/04/2014
Tickets are expensive, but Thalys train is not as comfort as German Rail ICE train..
- "Aachen to Paris" Marc p. 10/12/2013
We traveled to Germany with my husband on business. It was very convenient to get to the Aachen train station and then to Paris. The train station in Paris was 2 blocks from our hotel. The ease of taking the train helped make the trip memorable. The train was clean and neat and the seat have adequate room if you have to travel for long periods of time.
- "average first class experience" Anna Woo Jung c. 10/07/2013
It was an average first class travel. The only complain would be rude staff. Basically, my breakfast was thrown at me. Quite surprised to be treated yhat way. Drinks/food selection was good. Seats were ok.
