“great Midieval city gate, Wrong location on TA map”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

This tower is actually much closer to the central train station, easy walk from there. Look for a bakery which has the best and freshest goods in Aachen. Apple strudel is out of this world!! Very nice staff, too. this is on Boxgrab Strasse, not on the markt square near the rathaus. Why would a wall tower be in the middle of town???

“Mighty gate”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Marschiertor (built around 1300) is one of the remaining gates of Aachen and is one of the most powerful old city gates of Western Europe. The building is located a little lonely south of the city center and it is a surprise when it comes into the picture, because you do not expect such a beautiful old building here. It is definitely fun to watch when you're in the neighborhood. From the city center it is a small walk. It is also close to the train station.
