Beautiful cathedral but with an overzealous church host, SHOUTING Leise! Leise! ( be quiet) (what is the point shouting if you want a quiet church ? )in German and he almost explodes when you take a picture with your iPhone without flash, giving a 5 minute lecture how this is not allowed and that there are signs at the door. Even after a few Entschuldigings and apologies he STILL would not stop shouting and lecturing. Very very unfriendly .

From the fabulous exterior all the way to the amazing mosaics through to the truly outstanding stain glass windows which have to be seen to be believed. What a place

This was a magnificent cathedral to visit especially when you consider: (a) that this constuction was completed over 1,200 years ago & looks in better shape than many 20th century buildings; & (b) that not just anyone, but Charlemagne himself, attended mass there, & his marble throne is arms-length away. I missed the afternoon tour in English because I had to leave Aachen before that; even so, wandering through the cathedral with the written guide was useful & interesting. Definitely a site worth seeing, especially for history nuts like me.

Beautiful Dom, unique mosaic ceiling like a stared sky... the stained glass choeur is absolutely magnificent and overall the story behind its construction : offering a church to present and preserve the relics of the three kings intheir amazing gold reliquary . A must visit , one of the reason ti visit Aachen.
