Superb Architectural build of Aachen Castle.

“A cathedral in Aachen, Germany, originally started by Charlemagne as his imperial palace. From this period come the 16 sided base of the building as well as the 8 sided dome above. Over time, the tower, choir and numerous chapelles around its circumference were added. Especially the choir is of great architectural importance. It was the first addition from germany to the UNSECO world hertiage. Due to its abundance of relics it is, after the Dome of the Rock (Jerusalem), Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and St. Peter’s Basilica (Vatikan), the fourth most important place of pilgrimage of christianity.”

My name is Keith and I am a AFOL. Currently an expat living out in Basel, CH, but have a firm footing back in the UK when time permits. I have had had Lego ever since I can remember - and only until my wee one came along have I re-kindled the flame for building again. I also run, a resource site for the 1-75 series of miniatures by Matchbox. There are only three themes that I am get/collect (finances permitting) - City, Creator (Advanced and Expert) as well as the classic Star Wars sets from Eps IV to VI (anything else does not exist). I also keep an eye in Europe with ample chance to see how France, Germany and Switzerland market and offer LEGO.
