Charlemagne Barbershop, the barber in Aachen

The question often arises, for example after a failed visit to the hairdresser, which hair juggler will really understand his craft next time and, especially when it comes to men's haircuts or beard care, will know what his customers actually want in the end.

The right contact points for this topic are barbers and their shops.

The shops designed for the gentlemen of creation usually offer a great ambience, as well as timeless haircuts and styling, special care products for beards and hair and, due to the growing demand, year after year they are becoming more and more of a social meeting place for a well-groomed group of men than a standard hairdressing salon ever was could.

In the following we will introduce you to a barber in Aachen, to be precise the first Charlemagne Barbershop in Aachen.

The place

As already mentioned, the first Charlemagne Barbershop, which opened in 2020, is in Aachen, the westernmost city in Germany. More precisely, in the building at number 19 on Kockerellstrasse in the immediate vicinity of the market square and the beautiful and historic town hall, as well as the pub mile, the Pontstrasse, which is extremely well-known in Aachen.

The elite university “RWTH Aachen” (Rhine Westphalian Technical University) is in the immediate vicinity.

Especially if you need a fresh new haircut before a “party evening” or want to use your free time during university lectures, the location of the shop can be described as premium.

There are parking options on the street side in the surrounding area in the parking zones and nearby parking garages. Public transport stops can be reached in less than a minute's walk, so that there is no long walk to the barber in Aachen.

The external impression

In front of and behind the shop, which can be entered from two sides of the building, shop windows shine across the entire width of the building and direct the natural light and its sunrays into the interior.

A lovingly designed lettering “Charlemagne” with gold-colored Eurasia characterizes the front of the barber in Aachen. The interior of the barbershop is accessible with a main entrance door flush to the left of the building, which is of course also made of glass. It is a light-flooded shop on the lower level  six workplaces can be seen from the outside, which appears attractive without appearing overcrowded with customers. In addition, the relevant staff is eager and visibly completes their tasks.

In short, that's exactly how it should be. 

So we want to know more and enter the office.

The premises

The interior of the barber in Aachen shines with high-quality and completely damage-free furniture. The floor plan is divided into two levels.

First of all, the classic ground floor, the main workplace of a barber, the hairdressing chair which, as mentioned, has six positions, on which hair can also be washed.

The shop furnishings shine with high-quality, dark tones of wood with a high-gloss finish.

Details such as water spray bottles in a whiskey design round off the masculine-looking ambience.

In the right-hand area of ​​the barber in Aachen, seen from the main entrance area, is the reception desk where we register for our appointment booked online in advance and, after registering, are asked to go to the coffee counter or in the waiting lounge, in the form of extremely comfortable Chesterfield sofas and armchairs to take a seat. We decide to go to the counter, where we are offered ice-cold pineapples or, alternatively, a delicious one from the fully automatic machine. We agree and treat ourselves to a cool blonde drink to celebrate the day.

The qualifications

Qualifications of a barber in Aachen are twofold. Basically, the training of a barber is different than that of a German hairdresser. While in most cases a hairdresser deals with the hair on the heads of women and men, a barber is, from a global perspective, only focused on caring for male head and facial hair. In the case of the Charlemagne Barbesshop, the owner has significant professional experience in England and traditional barbershops there, which makes him a true barber. Our summary is not only a great and, from an interpersonal perspective, fun time in the shop, but also a result of the haircut that was inspiring. Google reviews of 4.9 stars probably speak for themselves at this point, without being worth further explanation in 2020.

As you have read, the Charlemagne Barber Shop, in which the team from the first barbershop in Aachen “Kings Barbers” works, is characterized by the excellent quality of the services offered there, which, coupled with great, in-house products, please every man's heart Let your heart beat faster in the pleasantly warm ambience.

It will also be worth a trip to the shop for you to get a fresh male style.

If you are interested in taking a look, you can make an appointment by calling 0241 95180263 or online at and get to know and appreciate the great shop and the staff who work there.

As barbers with over 30 years of experience in the trade, we were looking for styling and care products that convinced us 100%. There were some good products on the market, but none that really gave us what we needed. After some consideration, we decided in 2014 that we wanted to develop our own series. For two years, every evening after work in the barbershop, we used every free minute to work on developing the recipes in our basement. When it came to ingredients, the best was just good enough for us. We purchased the best available jojoba oils in Morocco, and argan oil from Italy.

After two years and numerous tests, we had our first product range, with which we have been delighting our customers ever since - we think 98% positive reviews speak for themselves. This has of course been continuously developed since its official launch in 2016. This is just one of the reasons why Charlemagne Premium products have won not just one, but several comparison tests in recent years.

 You can of course find all of our products here in our online store. If you have any questions about our products, you can reach us at any time at
