Well worth the tariff, some 250-plus religious artifacts, paintings, statuary are well displayed on three levels. Audio guide was helpful. Impressed that this collection belongs to the citizens of Aachen.

The treasury of Aachen Cathedral is full of spectacular exhibits including the reliquary containing the arm bones of Charlemagne and his sarcophagus. An illuminated page from the Gospels dated 1000 is amazing.

Remarkable history in art including a gold Charlemagne bust, reliquaries, monstrances, etc. Nicely displayed. If you visit Aachen this is a must see.

Some beautiful items are on display. I bought the English tour book (audio guides are available too) and that really helped explain what I was seeing.
