The July 2008 visit to Aachen
In July, a group of 21 adults and 1 child visited Aachen for one week.
They enjoyed a packed programme, including a welcome party in a park in Aachen, a boat trip in the Eifel region, a visit to a shop which made, sold and exported the local gingerbread, Printen, a Civic reception at the Town Hall, a full day trip to Maastricht including a boat trip and a walk round the old port, a trip to see a working coal mine and a farewell party in a restaurant under the Town Hall.

The party had spilled out into the main square, from which the Charlemagne statue was temporarily missing, and the new visitors had remarked on the pleasant atmosphere in Aachen.
We invite you to join us!
