Marktplatz, Aachen: 7 reviews and 16 photos


Outside the front of the Rathaus is the Marktplatz (Market Square) in which there is a fountain with a statue of Charlemagne. The bronze bowl of the fountain resembles a kitchen bowl which is why many inhabitants of Aachen call it the ?Eäzekomp? (the pea soup bowl). Unfortunately, this famous monument was being renovated while I was visiting.
