Quaint. Convivial. Unmistakeable.

The Postwagen in Aachen – The ideal place to linger in the historic town of Aachen. Whether for a beer after work, a fine glass of wine or the specialities of Öcher cuisine, you can enjoy yourself in a quaint ambience.

The Postwagen

In its present form, our Postwagen was opened in 1857 directly at the Town Hall. In August 1902 the Postwagen began operating as a restaurant. Georg Buchmeier renovated the building and opened a cosy restaurant for students, artists and visitors to the imperial city. A well-known place for social gatherings and cheery evenings – with a view of the romantically lit houses and streets around the Town Hall.
The spirit of this ambience will now be revived! Known for generations for its high-spirited evenings, the rooms were carefully renovated in 2019 and a new era of enjoyment was ushered in.
