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.

I visited Aachen during December while they were having their Christmas market. The place was PACKED with people however the Cathedral was outstanding. Marcellus peace of architecture and history, standing ironically in the centre of Aachen.
