Save to List
Town in 🇩🇪 Germany with a population of around 67 thousand people.

Nestled among the rolling hills of the Swabian Jura, Aalen is a picturesque town that’s often overlooked by tourists in favour of its larger and more famous neighbours. But Aalen has a lot to offer, from its well-preserved medieval centre to its lively nightlife and excellent shopping. The town’s main square is a lovely place to relax, with its pretty fountain and surrounding cafes and bars. Aalen’s old town is a maze of narrow streets and alleyways, home to a wealth of historic buildings, including the 12th-century St. John’s Church and the imposing 15th-century Rathaus. For a taste of Aalen’s history and culture, be sure to visit the Deutsches Aalen Museum, which is housed in a 13th-century castle.
