A sur­pris­ing week­end of cul­ture in Aachen with lay­ers of European his­tory, pre­cious art treas­ures and ex­cit­ing con­tem­por­ary art

Map of NRW

Pre­pare to be sur­prised by the lay­ers of gran­di­ose his­tory wait­ing to be dis­covered in the im­per­i­al city of Aachen. The cul­tur­al high­lights of your week­end will in­clude a vis­it to the UN­ESCO World Her­it­age Site of Aachen Cathed­ral as well as its treas­ury, which houses one of the most im­port­ant col­lec­tions of ec­cle­si­ast­ic­al treas­ures in Europe. A guided tour will also let you dis­cov­er the main sights of Aachen.

Built over 1,200 years ago, Aachen Cathed­ral still looks as im­press­ive as ever. It be­came the first ar­chi­tec­tur­al and art his­tory en­semble in Ger­many to be lis­ted as a UN­ESCO World Her­it­age Site in 1978. See one of the most sig­ni­fic­ant build­ings in Europe for your­self while soak­ing in the charm of the his­tor­ic old town!

You can be­gin your short break any way you like. Why not start with a re­laxed tour of Aachen Cathed­ral to ex­per­i­ence a mem­or­able slice of European his­tory. Af­ter­wards, you should make your way to the cathed­ral’s treas­ury for a short guided tour of one of Europe’s most sig­ni­fic­ant col­lec­tions of ec­cle­si­ast­ic­al treas­ures. The pre­cious his­tor­ic­al ob­jects on dis­play in­clude the “Cross of Lothair”, the “Bust of Char­le­magne” and the “Proserpina Sar­co­phag­us”.

The next day, a guided tour of the city’s pic­tur­esque al­ley­ways and his­tor­ic squares will re­veal lots of in­ter­est­ing and sur­pris­ing in­form­a­tion about the his­tory of Aachen. And if you are still curi­ous to dis­cov­er more, free ad­mis­sion to your mu­seum of choice in Aachen will help you round off your cul­tur­al week­end in the im­per­i­al city! You could, for ex­ample, choose to vis­it the renowned Lud­wig For­um for In­ter­na­tion­al Art if your in­terest lies in con­tem­por­ary art works, or the Suer­mondt-Lud­wig-Mu­seum with its ex­cep­tion­al col­lec­tion of paint­ings from the 12th to the 20th cen­tur­ies. Then there is the Couven-Mu­seum with its ex­hib­i­tion of in­teri­or design in the 18th and early 19th cen­tury, the In­ter­na­tion­al News­pa­per Mu­seum and the Centre Char­le­magne, the new mu­seum for the city of Aachen.
