Formerly a centre of imperial power, Aachen owes its reputation as a spa resort to its springs, the hottest in central Europe which were used by both the Romans and later rulers. Nowadays, the spring water is put to good use in ultra-modern healthcare facilities in the Aachen-Burtscheid district where there are three rehabilitation and spa clinics.
