Local from Aachen, Germany

Der Aachener Dom liegt im Herzen der Stadt. Die Kathedrale bietet neben seinen wunderbaren Ornamenten, die das gesamte Erdgeschoss verziehren auch interessante Fakten über die Geschichte von Karl dem Großen, derjenige, der den 'europäischen Geist' im christlichen Abendland etablierte. Ich empfehle unbedingt eine Tour zu buchen und euch herum führen zu lassen. Die Guides verstehen ihr Handwerk gut und selbst für einen gebürtigen Aachener gibt es einiges dazu zu lernen. Vielleicht habt ihr ja auch das Glück die geheime Schatzkammer in den Katakomben des Doms zu besuchen..
