Adobe have some list of default templates and also you can create any new one if needed

Example Site:

And also you can refer to Sample content / templates provided with the AEM

Hi @Eweni ,

There is no ready to use templates in AEM, those are either OOTB or customized one. To customize/build your template you can either copy from existing one and modify them according to your need visit below links for more details. There are 2 types of templates in AEM

  1. Static Template
  2. Editable Templates

There are plenty of videos on YouTube which depicts how to create templates eg. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=create+aem+template

Hope that helps!

Regards,

Santosh

In common practice, a new AEM website is generated using the AEM Project Archetype. https://github.com/adobe/aem-project-archetype

In the example editable template template. That's right, a template that you can make templates with. After building your newly project via AEM Project Archetype, you will find yourself a full width template under /libs/wcm/core/content/sites/templates.html/conf, for practice, try creating new templates in this section from the UI, and this does not require any coding at all. You can pre-set components or even have components statically configured, so all pages that is created with that template see's the same content. 

AEM Geeks from youtube have a series of videos on this topic.
