Some special early medieval artefacts
Aug 2021 • Couples
The treasury contains a good number of early medieval artefacts as well as more modern pieces.
The descriptions of the artefacts could be better placed into their context.
Worth the 6 euro fee

Magnificent in their workmanship and attention to detail, makes you wonder how it survived over the years. The history behind it too is quite something

Impressive
Aug 2020 • Family
I had visited this treasury before, more than twenty years ago. The exhibited treasures were still as impressive as I remembered them to be. One can only marvel at the amounts of gold and gems used to make the intricately designed relic shrines that can be viewed here. The exhibited treasures bear witness to fantastic craftsmanship. They are shown in a very respectful way - they shine - and you can view them from up close. This treasury is a gem in itself.

Impressive collection - small, but worth 3 euros.

I have seen bigger treasuries with larger collections in my travels. But the items are most impressive and boast pieces significant to the era of Charlemagne and the early church. Gorgeous chalices and jeweled scepters make up this eye-catching treasury. Definitely worth the small fee of admission!

Not a giant collection, but unique
May 2020 • Family
The treasury of Aachen cathedral is not a giant collection, but unique pieces that give you a good idea of medieval Germany and Charles the Great. The exhibits nicely exposed and explained and ordered by themes (e.g. coronation, relics, etc.). Definitely worth a visit on rainy days, but even on a sunny day one can spare an hour for it.

Up close and personal with the Cathedral treasures
Dec 2019
The Treasury of the Aachen Cathedral houses a collection liturgical treasures. We highly recommend visiting the treasury to see many works of art on display with dramatic lighting. Allow ~1+ hr for your visit.

Worthwhile
Dec 2019
It’s not the British Museum but the pieces they have in display are captivating particularly those closely linked to Charlemagne. I think this is a must do in Aachen. And at 10€ for a family ticket, it represents good value.

So lucky that all this has survived time,...
It's not all glitter that shines.
True, but this is quite amazing.
And so well crafted at a moment in time we didn't think it would be possible.
