Aachen Cathedral was the coronation church of German monarchs and is the burial place of Charlemagne. But that’s not the only reason why visitors flock to see it: it’s also full of interesting architecture – such as the Gothic choir hall built as a "glass shrine" – and has a fascinating artistic interior. Charlemagne’s desire for a Roman Empire decor is evident in the antique columns and a Gallo-Roman bear statue. This sacred building has plenty more to discover too. Be mesmerized by the first German monument designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
