Aix-La-Salsa ... Salsa in Aachen


Salsa - Locations in Aachen

Here's the complete Salsaholic's Guide to Aachen - come and see that we have more salsa here than many much bigger cities in Germany! Clubs are listed in alphabetical order.

Apollo Cinema & Bar
Pontstr. 141-149, Tel. +49-241-900 84 84
Despite the rather unfavourable day of Tuesday, the Apollo Salsa Parties are quite a hit. Every Tuesday starting at 22:00 with a free dance lesson and alternating DJs (Alan, Ulf, Mostafa). Entry 2,- EUR, Cocktails starting 3,- EUR.

BesitosKapuzinergraben 19, Tel. +49-241-4453682
Salsa Parties each 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. To receive the reminders and info on other upcoming events, please register for the DJ team's mailing list at
Besitos offeres a rather big concrete dance flor in the covered atrium of the "Kapuziner Karree" - a very beautifull and espacios setting. You'll find a rather unusual mix of salseros and non-dancers, which gives these nights a special touch. Good music and if you like you can also have some tapas. No Entry charge.

ElisenbrunnenRotunde des Elisenbrunnens, Friedrich-Wilhelm-Platz
These non-commercial Salsa and Tango evenings have become quite popular. Word spreads that more and more visitors from Holland, Belgium and surrounding German cities are seen at this unconventional site.
The dancefloor is situated in the ancient monument "Elisenbrunnen", open air but with a roof. Dancers meet here on Summer - Sundays between 18 and 22 h, on one weekend there's Salsa, on the other Tango. As dates are not completely independet of the weather, I recommend to check Ulf's Website at for information about the next dates. Replaced during winter time by a monthly (indoor) Salsa Party at "El Corazon".

El Sencillito
Mostardstr. 15, ex. "La Movida"
The locality of the old "La Movida" has been re-decorated and is again a place for salsa. These rooms are practically the birth place of Aachen's salsa scene! And "El Sencillito" has a lively salsa scene now, main day is Friday night.
Opening Wed - Sun 20:00, Sundays dance classes starting at 18:00, party from 20:00 on.
