UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Aachen Cathedral
The Cathedral in Aachen is one of the most important buildings in German history.
The Aachen Cathedral was the first German building to be registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. In fact, in 1978 it was one of the first sites in the world to make the new list. The cathedral was built around the year 800 as a chapel for Charlemagne or Karl der Grosse. His vast empire united western Europe, and today he's thought of as the father of France and Germany.
