The Free Imperial City of Aachen was a Free Imperial City and spa of the Holy Roman Empire, situated west of Cologne and southeast of the Low Countries, in the Lower Rhenish–Westphalian Circle. The pilgrimages, the Coronation of the Holy Roman Emperor, the flourishing industries and the privileges conferred by the various emperors combined to make it one of the most prosperous market towns of the Holy Roman Empire.
