With its thermal waters, the Elisenbrunnen fountain in the heart of Aachen is a symbol...

... of the spa city. The Elisenbrunnen, which consists of an open foyer and two pavilions, is well-known for its unpleasant-smelling thermal water. The two drinking fountains of the Elisenbrunnen in Aachen provide warm, sulphurous water at a temperature of 52°C. The unpleasant odour due to the high sulphur content of the water shouldn’t stop you from trying it, however, since it is said to have healing properties. Do you dare to take a sip?
To the right of the entrance to the Tourist Information office, there is a model of the Elisenbrunnen fountain, which is designed to help blind people in particular to feel the extensive building complex.
