“Stunning mosaic”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

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.

“Treasure island”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

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