“A logical visit after the cathedral”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

The treasury belongs to the cathedral and to get the whole picture of Charlemagne and the history of this town this place is another must. Beautiful and very interesting artefacts, that together with a visit to the cathedral provide you with the complete story.

“Unbelievable Treasures of Aachen Cathedral”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

Amazing how the items are displayed. So much gold and history dating back to the 600-800's. It is beyond words and a must see
while visiting the cathedral.

“Undewhelming”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

Honestly I was not impressed, but if you're in the area, you might as well go see it. A visit of 30 minutes is more than long enough.

“Charlemagne Artifacts Worth Seeing”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Often the Treasuries associated with cathedrals are filled with Christian art...after the 40th Madonna and Child, you glaze over. Not true here. The artifacts were really fascinating, especially if you have an interest in the history of Aachen, the Cathedral and Charlemagne. We enjoyed it more than we expected.
