Admire the impressive architectural mix of Gothic and Carolingian-Romanesque styles at Aachen Cathedral. Often referred to as the Imperial Cathedral, the church is the oldest of its kind in northern Europe. It served as the coronation site for German monarchs. You can tour the imperial throne and high altar of the mosaic-filled Palatine chapel. Then, head outside to see the dramatic Westwork, the building's western facade of staircases, niches, and bronze sculptures. Take a guided tour to see the throne and final resting place of Charlemagne. Plan your Aachen Cathedral visit and explore what else you can see and do in Aachen using our Aachen trip itinerary tool.

Aachen Cathedral Reviews
i have always wanted to visit this cathedral and it was the highlight of my weekend words cannot do it justice so plan a trip make a visit and judge and you will be surprised more »
The outside from Aachen's Dom is of course very beautiful! It's unique archtecture is well integrated with the surroundings and so on. But, once you step in the Cathedral is a whole new experience... more »
Very nice old building. The chandelier can be found in just about every math book because of its weight distribution and chain. They cleaned the mosaics (2018) recently, so that they now are really sparkly. Enjoy the beauty as it was created by the poor peasants on the really, really dark ages.
Oh, so beautiful! I had only a few minutes to look around but it was enough to be impressed. I will return and take a proper look!
