Worth to visit. This place is amazing, magic. It possible to spend hours just looking at all this beauty above and around. When we visited it, not overcrowded at that time of day, it was nice to sit quietly and relax.

this is also a must but only in combination with i) a guided tour and ii) a visit of the close-by treasury (domschatzkammer). both are closely related together.

only with the guided tour you will be able to go the the two most important parts of the building (the front part with the two sarko .... and the nice glas windows) and the upper part with the emperors chair (may be dissapointing but real).

this is a must (not only for prayers). the newly renovated cathedral is my place no 1 in the western part of germany (place no 2 is the view from the right rhine river side to the cathedral in cologne and to the bridge on the right side in combination with sunset.

When we passed by we entered the church. It was free entrance and very nice!!
Wonderfull to see the gold on the ceiling and the building structures.
If you pass by ... don’t forget to give it a small visit.

Nestled in the heart of Aachen, the Aachen Cathedral is a testament to the strength and wealth of Charlemagne's empire, which still endures today. While the outside of this cathedral is beautiful in its own right, its the interior of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is truly stunning. Mosaics adorn the walls and ceiling with massive amounts of gold leaf and granite. There are many amazing relics to be seen as well, including the final resting place of Charlemagne, the Karlsscherein, and the throne of Charlemagne, where 31 kings ascended the throne between 936 and 1531.
