Aachen is very beautiful, no wonder Charlemagne love it very much.

I especially love the glass window, that is the most attractive art for me, human's mind is very unique and precious~!! I really love those.

Thank you for introducing~!!! Makes me learn so much more.

DH, Aachen looks lovely! Thank you for sharing your mom and dad's photos. Charlemene's throne doesn't look very comfy though. Maybe if it had some batting on it, it would be better??

Aachen is my 2nd home and I am missing it so much! Thank you for sharing some photos of it! I hope to be back there for Christmas.

Parker, the way I pronounce it is Aaaahhken (lest that is how it is coming out now with a sinus infection)

I choose the right day to visit you, lol ! Aachen is the town I know the best since I live in Belgium. It's only 150 km from here and we go there for shopping or other (german) things. Tonight I will be sleeping in a hotel very close to Munich before we go to the Garda Lake on saturday ! My little cat family is alone for a week but very well taken care of by my friend and neighbor.
