This is the burial location of Charlemagne. Stopped at this Cathedral while traveling between Ghent and Cologne. Cathedral is very ornate inside.

I took the train from Cologne to see the cathedral, the town hall, and the old town. The cathedral was small compared to the Dom in cologne, but it was very interesting and beautiful inside. The town hall was also interesting and they made a good day trip.

It's a lot smaller than I had expected but if you are in Aachen it's probably the main attraction and the reason Aachen's other name is Aix-la-Chapelle.

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.
