Rathaus, Townhall of Aachen

Not a very appealing façade compared to some other town halls I have seen, but definitely one of the oldest one, almost 1200 years old. This town hall of Aachen was built over the ruins of the palace of emperor Carlus Magnus (Charles the Great). The building has suffered damages due to fire and WWII but thankfully not completely destroyed. 

We visited this after the cathedral tour, and strolled around in the market place in front of this townhall.
