Leisure, tourism and culture

The towns and municipalities in the StädteRegion Aachen have a lot to offer when it comes to leisure and tourism, including historic old towns and castles, adventures in the great outdoors, opportunities to relax, and cultural highlights.

Keen athletes will also find almost all their wishes fulfilled.
Whether you're interested in cultural highlights such as Aachen cathedral, the old town of Monschau of the Stolberg Castle, or the spectrum of natural wonders which includes lakes, Halden and the unique Venn landscape, there is plenty to discover in the StädteRegion Aachen.
The countryside of the StädteRegion is unique. Wild narcissi flower in the valleys of the Eifel. Streams wind their way through the landscape. Dreiländereck, Aachener Wald, Wurmtal, Nationalpark Eifel, Hohes Venn or Rursee - the StädteRegion Aachen has a lot to offer.
The StädteRegion Aachen can stand tall culturally too - from picturesque old towns and castles to high class museums and the wide range of theatre performances and events. The variety and quality of cultural offerings and the large number of leisure and relaxation opportunities are what give the StädteRegion Aachen its particular flair.
There are almost unlimited opportunities for sport in the StädteRegion. The Rursee in particular offers ideal conditions for water sports, as does the Blausteinsee, north of the town of Eschweiler. But there are no limits to the activities on offer on land and in the air, too.
However, the StädteRegion is just as inviting for rest and relaxation. As early as Celtic and Roman times, people used the hot springs in the StädteRegion Aachen, and even Emperor Charles enjoyed their beneficial, healing effects. Patients can be treated with thermal water in one of the many wellness clinics. If you're looking for peace and relaxation, the Carolus, Roetgen Thermen or Saunapark Würselen are the perfect places. The Freizeitbad Aquana swimming pool is much more lively, and especially popular with children and young people.
