Am Knipp

Am Knipp is one of those typical German restaurants where they serve traditional, meat-based German dishes. It is Aachen’s oldest eatery — over 300 years old — and offers a good location in the city centre and a beer garden for warm summer evenings. It is recommended to book a table in advance as the place is very popular.


Aachen’s cuisine is influenced by the neighbouring countries Netherlands and Belgium. The Öcher Puttes is a famous sausage, that is served with apples, potatoes or sauerkraut. Aachen offers upscale restaurants and affordable eateries, as well as international choices. If you are looking for a nice place to eat, you will find most of the restaurants in the heart of the city close to the cathedral. There will be something for everyone.
