Hello, my name is Ricardo Olivares, better known as Ricky Martin. I am a certified guide with more than 20 years of experience. I have a bachelor's and master's degree. I was born in Mexico City but from a very young age I was interested in history and culture. I have traveled to many countries in Europe, America and Asia because I am interested in learning about different cultures and meeting people from other countries. I am a nature lover and a very curious person that led me to be a guide. I currently live in Germany. Since I arrived I have loved its culture and history, so I decided to start a new adventure in this country. I would like to share my knowledge and my experiences with you in this beautiful city, full of legends and history... having been the home of none other than Charlemagne, the father of Europe! Are you ready to live a beautiful experience with me? :)

Tour description

Aachen , also known as Aachen, or Aachen Baths, due to the fame that its thermal waters have acquired, is a city of Cologne.
History buffs like me will know that it was Charlemagne's favorite residence.
It is the westernmost city in Germany, along with Belgium and the Netherlands.
Aachen has a long history, with a strong commercial component, for its coal mines. Over time, it has increasingly become a technology hub. I would like to save the best anecdotes for the tour, as Aachen has many memories and secrets that we will discover together.
During the itinerary, we will visit some of the most interesting places that will help us to get to know this beautiful city in more detail :

  • marktplatz
  • aachen cathedral
  • Elissenbrunnen
  • Bakhauv
  • puppenbrunnen
  • printten cookies

Of course, during the itinerary I will be happy to answer any doubts, questions or curiosities...
Aachen is a city to be discovered and I would love for you to take home a nice souvenir.
are you coming with me?
