Aachen Cathedral, one of the first UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Aachen Cathedral

Commissioned by Emperor Charlemagne around 796, this beautiful cathedral is a popular tourist destination in Germany. It survived several Allied bombings during World War II. Parts of the cathedral were severely damaged including the choir hall and altar. Fortunately, the basic structure survived and the parts that were destroyed were rebuilt. In 1978, Aachen Cathedral was one of the first 12 items to be listed on the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites (Wikipedia).

Starting today, you can visit the cathedral and add the new stamp and sticker to your Duckwyn Travel Passport.
