InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Aachen

Hello to all Americans in Aachen! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Aachen? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Aachen which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: it’s not without reason that Aachen has been around for millennia. The former Roman spa resort is a very innovative city known for being a hotspot of electric light utility vehicle manufacturing, but also its black metal music, carnival flair, technology-focused university, and much more! With the extensive bus network even including connections to neighboring Belgium and the Netherlands, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in outer districts such as Brand or even neighboring towns like Kohlscheid, which are only about 35 minutes away from Aachen’s center.

Although Aachen has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Aachen, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

    On InterNations I did not only meet interesting people but I also found a flat near Bochum and settled in quickly. A great platform.
