Aachen Visit 2010
Sunday 15th August 2010 11:12AM
|A coach of Society members, including several on their first visit, had an enjoyable week in Aachen with our German friends during August.|
We went to the attractive small towns of Kornelimunster and Monschau and looked down on three countries from the Dreilandereck hill top just outside Aachen. In the Eifel Mountains we had a tour of the Burg Vogelsang and a day was spent in Spa, Belgium (the original spa ) where, alas, no fortunes were won at the oldest casino in the world!
There was a reception by the Mayor of Aachen in the magnificent Rathaus and time to look around the building which was particularly appreciated by first-time visitors. As ever, the hospitality and quality of the food was wonderful both in the restaurants for the Welcome and Farewell Parties and at the many cafes visited during a week to remember.
