Aachen is a German city close to the borders to Belgium and the Netherlands. Its history goes back to the Romans and its university has a good reputation. Most famous in Aachen is the cathedral. It was the second UNESCO world heritage inscribed (some say for a good reason). Cathedral A lot of people see Aachen as the root of the European Idea because Charlemagne (Charls the Great), the first emporer over Europe, received his crown in Aachen Cathedral. Later, this cathedral became his funeral place, so you can find an exhibition of his reliquary there.
