I was quite disappointed to find that this gate is under renovation. There are scaffolds all around, and the gate can hardly be seen. Better check when the renovation works should be finished.

If you are in Aachen you should take the time to see the 2 city gates. They are from the 1300s. Pretty amazing they are still standing!

This was interesting to try to figure out. I was walking back to the train station (the long way) from the Cathedral, after stopping for some pastries and chocolates i stumbled upon this. Very cool old gate on the city center side of the bridge.

This is one of the two remaining gates of the city walls. Beautiful and historic but not worth going our of your way for if you're short on time.
