“By a English Guide Book if you don'r speak German”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

The cathedral is awe inspiring. The art and the icons. Charlemagne's throne. The only problem I had is the didn't have any English tours available when i was there. I got a english guide book and joind the German group. You must take a guided tour or you will miss so much.

“More historic than religious...awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

This cathedral itself is worth the trip to Aachen. It is full of history, not just religious. The chandelier is awesome, as are the ceilings. The reliquaries are gold with very fine handcrafting. Sign up for a tour in the Dom information office just around the corner. The tours are in English at certain times of the day to get a closer look. You can also buy an English brochure for a self guided tour for about 1 Euro.

“Beautiful Cathedral”

The cathedral is beautiful. The mosaics were lovely. If you want to take pictures just go into the info center and pay a small fee.
