Wow, Aachen was all I thought it would be; so what attracted me to this place? First of all it is a tri-point as it sits right on the border of Belgium, Holland and Germany. A sort of European Cameron's Corner if you will.The other interesting fact is that it was the first German city to fall to the Allies after the D Day invasion in 1944.
