Monschau or Stolberg

We would like to spend 2 or 3 nights in the Aachen area...but we'd like to stay in a town more quaint than Aachen. We were thinking Monschau or Stolberg. Does anyone have a preference? Or can offer an even better option in the area. We don't want to get to far from Aachen, and will be heading to Bruges Belgium after this stop. Thanks in advance for your advice!

The train from Aachen to Bruges with connection in Liege will pass the villages of Hergenrath and Welkenraedt. Maybe they are nice too.

Monschau is suited for those visitors with a couple of hours to kill one afternoon. It is dead beyond belief from the early evening when all the restaurants close.
