Any worthwhile visit to Aachen includes a stop at City Hall. A sure-fire local gastronomical attraction awaits food-lovers for a delicious meal in the cellar of this building tucked away in the city’s historical heart.

An emblematic setting

The city halls of German cities often have restaurants in their basements! In Aachen you can eat very close to the monuments that impacted the city’s history. Entirely renovated in 2004, the "Ratskeller" restaurant took up residence in the vaulted cellar of City Hall which is much admired for its Gothic facade. When the sun is out, the terrace offers a fantastic view on the cathedral.

Elegance and conviviality

Guests will find modern and pared down design within the thick stone walls. The kitchen and service are run like clockwork, but the restaurant’s atmosphere is very welcoming. Every one of the many dishes is a feast for the eyes and none is the same as the next. The Ratskeller's kitchen excels in compositions that come together at the confluence of different culinary traditions. You can try lobster on a bed of couscous or duck with walnuts. A new menu every day makes it easy to discover innovative creations at a reasonable price.
