Aachen is a quick getaway trip from my base in Maastricht in the Netherlands, and although it was very near, I never really took the time to explore much and see the town. So before leaving the area, I spent half a day going through the old town and taking the cathedral English tour, and it was all quite lovely. I had no idea that small Aachen was the center of an important empire, and that there was so much history to this area.
To give you a taste, here is a short photo tour of Aachen …
