Aachen Cathedral - Review

The Dom Cathedral of Aachen is one of the most influential buildings in Europe – architecturally, historically and religiously. The great Emperor Charlemagne built it; he is buried here, along with many other later emperors and religious leaders. Some of Germnay’s most important historical treasures are contained within. Thirty of Germany’s kings were crowned inside this church. It is an important pilgrimage stop. The highlights are:

  • Relics collected by Charlemagne himself, such as the cloak of the Blessed Virgin; the clothes of the Infant Jesus; the loin-cloth worn by Christ on the Cross; and the cloth on which lay the head of St. John the Baptist after his beheading – all of supreme religious importance.
  • The Golden Shrine where Charlemagne’s bones are kept.
  • Emperor Barbarossa’s huge golden chandelier.
  • The Gothic Palpatine Chapel – the world’s most important example of Carolingian architecture.
  • The Gothic choir and the magnificent gold front of its altar.
  • The Shrine of the Virgin Mary.
  • The wonderful stained class and mosaics.
  • The Cathedral Treasury – some incredibly important relics and medieval artworks are stored here.

But all that is only on the inside – the Church’s stunning exteriors are equally impressive. You must also see:

  • The beautiful Dome.
  • The Belfry with its eight bells.
  • The bronze Wolf’s Doors of the west Portal.

The cathedral was also one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
