Banquet Halls

Aula Carolina

Aula Carolina as former monastery church looks at a long and eventful history. First mentioned in the 13th Century, the foundation stone of the building was placed at May 11th, 1663. After an extensive renovation in 1980, it now serves as a school auditorium for the Kaiser-Karls-Gymnasium and can be used outside of class time for a variety of events.


Goldener Schwan

The “Goldener Schwan” is one of the oldest restaurants in Aachen. Ground and first floor are triaxial and the upper floors were built in two axes. The facade of the five-story building dates back to the 19th Century. The courtyard facade and the core of the house are from the 17th Century and were built after the great fire in Aachen.
In the nineties of the 19th Century, the brewery was owned by the Bonnie family, who also maintained a restaurant. After the Second World War, the “Schwan ” was one of the first new restaurants, which was the destination of the hungry and poor population.




In the “Krönungssaal” of the Aachen Town Hall, faithful copies of the crown jewels of Viennese Secular Treasury are on display, including the "Reichskleinodien", a manuscript from the court school of Charlemagne, the sword of Charlemagne, the imperial crown, orb and various swords. They shall present the 38 coronations that have been consummated between 813 and 1531 in Aachen. Originating in the 19th Century, the greatest history paintings of romanticism, the frescoes by the Aachen artist Alfred Rethel (1816-1859), depict scenes from the life of Charlemagne. Numerous receptions, lectures and concerts take place in this hall.




The restaurant LivingRoom is located in the heart of the historic city center of Aachen. The cozy terraces, on the popular courtyard and on the Büchel, invite you to linger. Enjoy the view from the yard with the replicas of ancient columns from Roman times to the Aachen Cathedral. On the other hand, at Büchel, you can experience the goings-on of the city of Aachen on the venerable “Bahkauv” fountain.
The team at the LivingRoom looks back on about 20 years of experience in the Aachen gastronomy. With the newly developed concept of the »boutique restaurant« the LivingRoom offers not only mediterranean delicacies, but also a very special shopping experience. The furniture in retro style and a lot of stylish accessories are constantly for sale. If you like something, you just ask for the furniture price list.




The Ratskeller offers food and drinks in a historical setting. It consists of the Ratskeller, an important meeting place over the centuries; the “Tonne”, a romantic arch, famous for many feasts; and the very old “Postwagen”, the most traditional of all pubs in town. Masonry archs, elegant columns, white painted brick walls, black granite floors and the view from the windows of the nearby terraces behind the town hall. Although the Ratskeller on the ground floor bears giant chassis of the Town Hall, it is not a basement. Its exceptional architecture give the Ratskeller a haimish impression.


Weißer Saal

weisser saal

Starting in 1727, this room was redecorated by Italian stucco artists and transformed into the Town Hall‘s small celebration hall. In addition to the hand-modelled stucco work, six portraits of prominent figures catch the eye. These are the envoys of the powers that brought an end to the Austrian War of Succession with the “Aachen Peace“ in 1748. The best known of them is the British noble John Montagu, the third Earl of Sandwich (1718-1792), famous most of all for the fast food named after him. His portrait hangs on the south wall on the right. Before leaving the room, take a look at the magnificent work of the Italian stucco artists. Keep your eyes open for a winged “horse“ with a goat‘s head, a bird‘s tail and woman‘s breasts! In the four medallions you can see symbols of antique sovereign virtues: the fasces and yoke, the sword pointed towards heaven between the Pillars of Hercules, the Ten Commandments with a pair of scales and finally a lion with a sceptre.


Zum goldenen Einhorn

The "Einhorn", as the people of Aachen affectionately call their oldest traditional gastronomy, is not only popular with locals and tourists alike because of its cosy rooms.

On the terrace, with a view of the impressive backdrop of Aachen City Hall, the motto is: see and be seen. Whether a cultivated beer, an exquisite drop, plain food or one of the specialities from the creative department of chef Dieter Becker - quality and friendliness are the trumps here
