Cathedral of Aachen
Aachen Cathedral

The Cathedral of Aachen is one of the most famous examples of occidental architecture. It is the coronation church of more than 30 German kings, burial site of Charlemagne, major pilgrimage church and cathedral church of the Aachen diocese since 1930. In 1978 it was the first German building to be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list. A guided tour is therefore an essential part of any visit to Aachen and a must for anyone who loves historic buildings and churches.

April - October: daily 7am - 7pm. November - March: daily 7am - 6pm. No visits during the services, e.g. no tours before 11am., Sundays before 1pm. There is a concerts series of evening music in June, July, September and October, each Wednesday at 7pm; admission: 5 €.
