DESTINATIONS germany aachen Cafes Pausenbrot


Pausenbrot is famous for the sumptuous sandwiches (Pausenbrot in German), made of sourdough and served in all kinds of varieties. They also offer a small breakfast selection, pastries and cake, as well as home-made lemonade. Plus, they take pride in their organic takeaway packaging.


The Aachener Printen (gingerbread-like treats), Reisfladen (pie filled with rice pudding), Belgian waffles, pralines – all this and more awaits you in Aachen’s many cafes. Café culture can be found all over the city inspired by the Benelux countries bordering Aachen. A lovely hot chocolate or home-made cake in a pleasant atmosphere is the possibility for recharging your batteries and meeting friends. Most of the cafés have outdoor seating in the summertime and await you already.
