“Beautiful”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

One of the most beautiful church I have ever been in. The wood cravings, and the mosaic ceiling are so unique. The stain glass windows were destroyed in WW II.They were replaced in 1951. Newer but beautiful.Charlemagne remains are kept in the Shrine of Charlemagne. Well worth your time.

“Must see”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

An amazing cathedral that is a must see. Hard to believe that Charlemange was from here 1200 years ago, and he's buried here as well. Looks like a new museum will be going in shortly that I wish we could have seen. Beautiful mosaics.

“General city visit -”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Aachen is just a nice, mid-size German city with many attraction and a lot of history!
I do not want to write something about anything specific! Just go there for a day and make up your mind yourself. The 'Weihnachtsmarkt' in December is also worthwhile visiting. Come during late afternoon so you can see both ... the day and night view!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

It's always been a must see, but now that it's fully renovated it is even more astonishing. Impressive guided tour is also advisable (for a fee).

“Must see”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Not only worth a detour, but worth a trip.

One of the most important historic buildings of the middle ages, over 1200 years old. If there were a 6th star, this building would get it. Take the tour (check internet for availability beforehand), and see for yourself. Great to combine with a visit of the treasury.
