Station Religion
Aachener Dom

Charlemagne's original St. Mary's Church survives to this day as the core structure of the Aachen Cathedral. It was the sacral centre of the Carolingian empire and became the coronation church of medieval kings. As stations on the Route Charlemagne, the Cathedral along with the Cathedral Treasury and the planned Cathedral Information document the history of Aachen and deal with the theme "Religion".

Charlemagne's palace, the era of coronations and the tradition of pilgrimages have produced an unique and magnificent church treasure whose most famous pieces are on show today in the Cathedral Treasury.
