Traffic Information & SIXT Tips

Traffic Information & SIXT Tips

The city center is a 40-minute drive from Maastricht Aachen Airport on fast modern roads. Adding a GPS to your booking when you rent a car in Aachen helps you navigate the unfamiliar streets with ease. Dipped headlights are compulsory when it is foggy, snowing, or raining and speeding regulations are strictly enforced. Parking zones and parking garages in the city are clearly marked.
Evidence of human settlement in the region goes back to the Bronze Age and Holy Roman Empire, but the city is most famous for its role during the reign of Charlemagne. He made it the political and geographical heart of his vast Empire in 974 A.D. Although heavily damaged during the Second World War, Aachen has been restored and brought back to life. As you explore the city in your rental car, look out for the 14th-century Rathaus, or city hall. This striking Gothic building is topped with 50 life-sized statues of German kings and rulers. You will also see the Pont Gate and the Marching Gate and remaining remnants of the medieval city walls. Another landmark is the Puppenbrunnen, a modern fountain that features clever mechanical art.
Sightseeing Destinations

Sightseeing Destinations

Drive the historic streets of Aachen and then stop for a break in the historic Katschhof Square. From here, you have a view of the Rathaus, the Dom, and several buildings that date back to the time of Charlemagne. Escape the city heat in the summer months with a walk or short drive to the spa garden of Altstadt. You can enjoy panoramic city views from the top of the Lousberg hill. No visit to the city is complete without a tour of Aachener Dom. This magnificent building is the burial place of Charlemagne and the coronation site of more than 30 German kings. The palace chapel of Charlemagne, the Pfalzkapelle, is a good example of Carolingian architecture while the treasury or Domschatzkammer holds impressive collections of jewels and coronation regalia. The World War II Henri-Chapelle American Cemetery and Memorial is a tranquil place and the resting place of nearly 8,000 American military personnel lost during the Battle of the Bulge. There is also a museum and chapel in the grounds.

GreenTech G.
Aachen branch staff was just excellent.
It's efficient process for rent a car. Booked online n picked up at the day. Deposit €300 needed, and refunded 2nd day after returned the car. Returned the car at 9pm was easy, just park in front of the office and drop the car key inside the drop box at lobby. Got a perfect VW Tiguan for 5 days trip to Italy. Definitely will come back for next Aachen visit.

Renting cars very often here. Most of the time, they don't have the car you reserved before. But they always come with an solution or even a better offer. Always make sure you have all documents with you! It's a strict policy which is also very understandable.
