    Yes, I also had a very rainy day and evening in Aachen, but then it cleared up the next morning. Glad you found the famous "cheering-up-kids-tired-from-shopping fountain".

    Very nice page. Great hotel tip and great Travelogue for such a pretty town, but a mechanized fountain of puppets? What WILL those kooky Germans think of next? Thanx! :)

    Lovely travelogue. I have seen something similar in Berlin. But they present bears.

    Interesting exhibition! Aachen looks like a beautiful town, more beautiful than what I have seen of the Bundesland (German state) NRW :)
