Aarau is a town in northern Switzerland, on the Are River, as well as the administrative center of the canton of Aargau. The heart of Aarau is the old town. Many houses of the old town have large painted gables, so Aarau is often called the "town of beautiful gables".

The plan of the old town is a wrong square consisting of four parts. The buildings in the old town are located in accordance with the plan of the 16th century, when almost all the buildings of the Middle Ages were rebuilt or reconstructed. The architectural development of the town ended in the XVIII century, when it began to expand beyond the then existing town wall. Most of the buildings around the old town date back to this period.

The main attractions of the town include the Town Hall, the Fountain of Justice, the Clock Tower Obere Turm decorated with a Cubist-style fresco "Dance of Death". In addition, Aarau houses many interesting museums, including the Art Gallery, the Aarau Museum, the Police Museum, the Electricity Museum and the Historical Museum.
