Aachen is located in the norwest of Germany at the border with Netherlands and Belgium. Also known as Aix-de-la-chapelle or Aquisgrano, its name derives from the latin word for water. Historically, this place is known as a spa city and a favourite residence of the King Charlemagne.
After living a month in Aachen, I feel that I can share a brief description of the things you can do during your stay. Stay tuned! :) Aachen está situada no lado noroeste da Alemanha, fazendo fronteira com a Holanda e Bélgica. Também conhecida como Aix-de-la-chapelle ou mesmo Aquisgrana, o seu nome deriva do latim e significa água. Historicamente, este lugar é conhecido como uma cidade termal e a residência predilecta do Rei Carlos Magno. Depois de viver um mês em Aachen, tenho a liberdade de poder compartilhar uma breve descrição das coisas que pode e deve fazer durante a sua estadia lá. Atente! :)
I hope you have liked the first post (here!) on the series "what to do/see in Berlin"; today I will share the second one. Stay tuned. Note: This journey occured in October, and unfortunately this post comes in a time when Berlin is under a cloud of sadness. Peace to the victims' souls. Stay strong and free, Berlin.
Berlin, the 2nd most populated city in the EU after London, was an astonishing surprise.
It was my first travel to Germany and I have to confess I was going with low expectations. I was picturing a dark and boring city, with cold and unhappy people. By the end of the trip, I left Berlin with a clear message in my mind: "I would and definitely live here". It is a stupendous city (more info about Berlin here!), clearly a city designed for the future.
Today I will share the first post on what to do/see in Berlin. If you pretend to visit this city, keep in mind that it has a lot to offer, being a huge city, so my advice is to take 4 or 5 days days off to enjoy the city.
