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.

There is no charge to tour the cathedral, and the only requirement is to remove your hat upon entrance. At Christmastime, when we visited, there were many festival booths surrounding the cathedral...

So much history throughout this stunning Dom. Free to walk in on the first floor, where you get a view of the mosaic ceilings and top to bottom, stained glass. The climb to the top of the tower is also easy and accessible. This is a must see when visiting Aachen.
I was in awe to visit this church, no wonder it is the first site to be granted UNESCO World Heritage in Germany. Vistors are allowed starting at 1pm, you have to pay extra to enter the area where Charlemagne's grave is. It is really worth a visit. Very impressive. Pictures does not do the justice on how beautiful it is.
Really beautiful church. Visit is more than recommended. This is definitely on of Aachen highlights. Free ticket to the church, if you have time include the treasury which is a bit further, but course it is payed. Not here like google maps indicates.
Absolutely beautiful cathedral with gorgeous and unique architechture, having historically significance. If you know the history behind the city of Aachen and the cathedral you will be amazed and you can find yourself in a medieval period after entering inside. The design in golden colour is the most unique design i have ever seen.
The Aachen cathedral is as impressive as it is important historically. Built in around 790 to 800, it is the burial site of Charlemagne. Over 30 Kings and 12 Queens were crowned in the cathedral. Wow, the mosaics! Stopped in Aachen just to see it and it did not disappoint.
