I visited Aachen once on a grey and rainy day. So my first impression was not excellent. But a guided tour inside the stunning historical Dom made me forget the chilly city outside. This UNESCO World Heritage masterpiece is one of the most atmospheric places I've ever visited. It's got more history in every stone than some cities in their whole.

Useless to say the pictures are wonderful again.

Nope, it's a German speaking city. If anything the local dialect is closer to Dutch than it is to standard German.

wow, I never thought that Aachen is as charming and beatiful as this.
I remebered the train I boarded way back passed this city
and I just looked out from the window to have a little glimpse.
