We visited the Cathedral and paid a small fee so we could take photos. This Cathedral is a little different to many I have seen in Germany and well worth a visit.

If you're in Aachen, you just had to visit that one, it's incredibly beautiful. And glittery. Probably one of the best cathedrals I've visited in Europe. And I've visited quite a few.

This is one of the more impressive and oldest cathedrals in Germany. Ornate decoration and reliquaria. Be sure to take the guided tour (tickets at the Dom Information) for many fascinating anecdotes, background information, and access to the choir and stone coronation throne.

Quintessential Cathedral in NW Germany, Charlemagne's final resting place and the coronation place of many King's. Towers and spires reaching for the sky in this octagin shaped edifice are grand, beautiful stained glass windows, pretty frescoes and sculpture...simple awesome!

Magnificent. Very peaceful inside and very very beautiful. I wish the signs / rules were clearer and had more English translations. Highly recommend a visit

Great and impressive cathedral. Take your time and enjoy this masterpiece of a building and send your thoughts to the history behind. We did not know much about it before but were happy that we visited it.

This most significant of German cathedrals was not a disappointment. Except maybe for the fact that the site of Charlemagne's burial was roped off. I guess the noise in the cathedral was also a disappointment. Why do we think that a request for silence means...More
