At the center of the old city this is a beautiful dom. It has a deep and layered history, it's worth studying it before you go so you know what to look for. It's a great stop while wandering the old city..

1300 year old church with beautiful mosaics in town center. Towering above the city line surrounded by great restaurants, shopping. The church evaded allied bombing and retains its traditional grandeur.

The Aachen Cathedral is a charming small church! I think it is wonderful with more mystic than the Cathedral in Cologne which is nice, but more commercial.

The Cathedral is very nice and attractive with a lot of things to see inside. Moreover, it is also important from the historical point of view because of the coronation of Charlemagne.

Very beautiful Cathedral with an impressively beautiful and rich decoration. Amazing vitrals and specially the rich colorful paintings gives it an unsual beauty. For as little as € 1.00, you are allowed to take pictures.
