"The Treasury" Dom Schatzkammer - Cathedral Treasury Tip by Sjalen

Next to the cathedral is the treasury and this is a real gem! What is supposedly Charlemagne's arm bone sits in a golden arm and hand casing. Also on display is Margaret of York's (Richard III's sister) crown with the Yorkist roses. This was donated by her to Aachen, since Margaret was married to the Duke of Burgundy and had her court in Mechelen (Belgium) and in this part of Europe people worshipped the Charlemagne cult. These are just some of the wonders you can see along with medieval tapestries and more jewellery.

Address: Next to the cathedral.
