Aachen's gothic and baroque town hall is in the centre of the city on the Markt square. It stands on the site of Charlemagne's Palace and started life as a Gothic building and was converted into a baroque building after it had been seriously damaged in a fire.
The façade of the building is adorned with statues of 50 German rulers. Charlemagne and Pope Leo III are in the centre.
A visit includes the Coronation Hall with 19th century frescoes. In a glass case copies of the Crown jewels are on display.
