The Aachen Theatre is a graceful structure used for both music and drama, housed in a magnificent classical building designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel and Johann Peter Cremer. Together with the Aachen Symphony Orchestra, it offers a sensible contrast between tradition and modernity.

Theatre in a magnificent building

Whether as a music theatre, the setting for a play, or a backdrop to a concert, the Aachen Theatre transports its visitors again and again into the realms of fantasy. Whether it is opulent opera with excellent voices and a brilliant orchestra, or wonderful plays with outstanding actors: A visit transports you outside the drudgery of everyday routine and invites you to meetings with touching and moving stories and figures. Both stage and dressing rooms are in the theatre built by Karl Friedrich Schinkel. Not only is the classical repertoire kept alive here, but contemporary theatre is at home here as well.

Kissed by the muses

The foundation stone of the magnificent theatre building was laid in 1822, the year that the Prussian King Wilhelm III celebrated his Silver Jubilee. Eight impressive pillars decorate the façade. Over these soar the muses Melpomene, symbol of tragedy and Thalia, symbol of comedy. The workshop building in Hubertusstraße is the venue for new forms of theatre. Young and not so young visitors to the theatre meet here, in the so-called "Mörgens". Concerts by the Symphony Orchestra take place in the Eurogress, the conference centre in Aachen.

Jens, 30 TRENDY ADVERTISER

I've always loved Cologne. The city is industrial and romantic at the same time. I love my city for its galleries, classical concerts and elegant restaurants and its traditional and very trendy bars! My little extra: I love words, the arts and literature!
