Vantage point/Observation tower
Do you want to enjoy a great view, or just relax? Then the Lousberg hill is the right place to be.

The Lousberg is the highest hill in Aachen and is a great place to come for anyone wanting to be out in the fresh air. There is a holiday feel to the place, especially in good weather. Then, you’ll not only see joggers climbing up the 264-metre hill. Many families spend their free time here on one of the playgrounds, and walkers enjoy the lovely view over the Soers district. Do you feel like spending a relaxed Sunday just hanging about? Since 2008, the hammocks on the Nordhang slope of the Lousberg are there for anyone to use!

You want to know more about the Lousberg? The app of the same name uses photos, videos and historical maps to bring the history of Aachen's local mountain to life. A hiking route with waypoints and explanations is also included - free of charge!
