Aachn Dom worth the visit. Despite its renovations in modern era, it kept all the ancient appeal of one of the most important center of Christianity during the medieval time. I strongly recommend a guided tour there.

What a Cathedral, one of the most beautiful we have visited during our many travels all over Europe and the world. If you are in Aachen, regardsless of religious origin, this is a must see building.

Amazing to walk around. Not worth going inside, It has more character from the outside. There is an admission fee.

This is not to be missed. We put Aachen on our itinerary because of Charlemagne. The city was a highlight for us during a European tour that included Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and Hungary.

Interior is clean and staff are friendly and helpful. Entry is free. Only challenge is crowd control - suggest that a measured flow system be introduced.
