Good Places for Lunch and Dinner
The conference will be held in the C.A.R.L. auditorium. Nearby you find the University Mensa (4-minute-walk) and the Pontstrasse (8-minute-walk) with a variety of very affordable restaurants. We have some recommendations for lunch (close to the venue) and dinner (closer to the city centre).
MAMA & PAPA TAI (Pontstrasse 95, 52062 Aachen) offers Vietnamese food and sushi. They have a special lunch menu. www.mamamundpapatai.de
At Habibi (Pontstrasse 151, 52062 Aachen), you can find all vegetarian Libanese food. They have very limited seeting, but their food is great for take-away!
AKL (Pontstraße 1-3, 52062 Aaachen )is another small Libanese restaurant. There are a few spots inside, but you can also order food from AKL to eat in the more spacious cafe nextdoor, the Cafe Egmont. Alternatively, get a take-away meal and take a walk around the town hall and the cathredral, which are within a few minutes' walking distance. www.akl-orient.de
If you are only looking for snack and a coffee in the lunch break, we can also highly recommend Aachen's bakeries . For example, there is a Nobis bakery directly next to the C.A.R.L. auditorium. When in Aachen, try Pinten (similar to gingerbread) and Streuselbrötchen (a local yeast-based pastry with very sweet crumbles).
Karls Wirtshaus (Markt 17 - 21, 52062 Aachen) offers hearty German food and a selection of different beers in a modern atmosphere. It is located at the market near the town hall. www.karls-wirtshaus.de
Aachener Brauhaus is another, more traditional option for hearty German cooking, like roasted pork ("Haxe"). www.aachener-brauhaus.de
DAY DU (Kleinmarschierstraße 74, 52062 Aachen) is a modern Asian restaurant, offering sushi and curries. www.daydu.de
At Pizzeria La Finestra (Pontstraße 123, 52062 Aachen), you can get typical Italian specialities like pizza, pasta, and salads. wwww.lafinestra-aachen.de
