Aachen Zoo

A lovely little park with animals and playgrounds just 10 minutes from the center of Aachen! This is a rather small zoo – which makes it perfect for younger kids

There is a small farm with goats and donkeys. Kids can get a poney ride there too

There are a few different play areas scattered around the park. It really is great for younger kids!

But this was our most favorite – be careful, as it’s near the entrance! You can really get stuck 🙂

All in all, we had a good time…

…actually, a great time!!

Here is the map of the park

Aachen is one of our favorite cities in Germany. We love walking around the Cathedral and having a café at the Market Square in front of the Townhall. The Christmas market is also lovely!

Aachen has one of our favorite Christmas markets, we keep going every year!

It is also one of the best Christmas markets in Europe that we have visited. Check the post below to see which others are worth a visit!

Best Christmas markets in Europe

We love gluhwein and trying a local delicacy at a Christmas market! It is one of our favorite holiday traditions and we are so happy these are taking place in 2021 again
