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.”
