We got the English speaking tour - it was about 45 minutes - amazing pieces that house the relics of Charlemagne. Some interesting history as well.

Back to glory days and to experience this is a must. Take the guided tour as the history is rich and the guides have snippets of excellence that you do not find in the reading material

If you are into art and intricate gold and silver work, this museum is for you. It also had some ancient textiles and other objects from the Catholic Church. Really worth a visit.

Took the advice of an acquaintance in Maastricht and so very happy that we took the bus to Aachen and visited the Treasury and the Jewel Box church.

Yes there is a parcking deck in the city centre. You can walk from there to the museum easily :)

Hiyah,their is no access for wheelchairs above ground floor. You can go to THE SHRINE OK.The Treasury has wheelchair access and is well worth a visit!
