Aachen is a well-known spa and health resort, whose hot water springs were already known to the Celts. It was Charlemagne's favourite abode and he made it the capital of the Frankish Empire. It boasts a remarkable cathedral which has witnessed the coronation of thirty emperors. Today a thriving industrial hub and endowed with a prestigious technical university, its cosmopolitan charm is due to its position so close to Belgium and Holland.
