I am the Team Leader and responsible for development, marketing and general coordination of the Summer and Winter Schools. Should you have any questions about the programs, please do not hesitate to contact me.

My favourite place in Aachen is the Pontstraße. Located near the main campus area it is a great place to have a bite to eat or meet up with some friends for a coffee or a drink after a busy day at the university.

My favorite place in Aachen is the Westpark. You can play football and basketball, have a walk or spend time with friends with a barbecue on long summer nights. It’s a safe haven very close to the city center.
