This is a must if you visit Aachen if only to see the wonderful mosaic that make up the whole of the cieling, Its an unusal octagonal shape. Spend a moment of quiet contemplation in the side chapel and take in the windows.

Warning you have to buy a licence to take pictures, but only a couple of euros.

Beautiful tiled ceiling. Wonderful ancient treasures. Incredible lead fitted windows. The cathedral is located in a medieval part of town.

Although, the cathedral is not an immense building, it is a very charming place. Especially the octagonal part with the great chandelier.

I love seeing ok castles and churches. This is a beautiful cathedral. I live the art inside and all the stained glass windows.

The architecture is amazing. It is different in each section. The interior is wonderful, so many different things to look at and there is a calming atmosphere in there. Walking around outside is very interesting, the alms houses and the courtyard are interesting. Well worth a vist.
