Aachen is a fantastic little city of 250,000 inhabitants. Its history dates back 5000 years and involves having been a
Roman spa town and later the seat of Charlemagne in the 8th century.

The University and conference venue is a five-minute walk from Aachen’s historic city centre with its famed cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. (E-) bike trips of 15 minutes will take you into Belgium and the Netherlands, and a 3-hour train ride will get you to Paris. You can find more information here.

Aachen is easy to reach by train and airplane, with numerous international hub airports 1-3 hours away, such as Frankfurt (1.5 hrs), Dusseldorf (2 hrs), Brussels (2 hrs); Amsterdam & Paris (3 hrs), etc.
