Accomplished in stages between the 8th and 19th, the Aachen Cathedral imitates all the artistic tendencies ever adopted all through ages. Formerly enthused by the churches of the Eastern Holy Roman Empire, it was urbanized in the middle ages and additional festooned by consecutive authorities to end up as a classy, multifaceted magnum opus of sacral architecture that served as a rousing foundation for other German constructions. What makes the regal Cathedral even more beautiful is the fact that it has been chosen as the final resting place of Charlemagne. The Aachen Cathedral with its Palatine Chapel is the oldest in Northern Europe and has high symbolic value. What they in fact had built was a palace for him, of which now only the minster remains.
