Originally commissioned by Charlemagne in 786 AD as his imperial chapel, Aachen Cathedral is the oldest in Northern Europe and is one of the most important surviving examples of Carolingian architecture. Its distinctive octagonal dome is adorned with golden mosaics and surrounded by a Byzantine-style ambulatory. The cathedral contains several holy relics collected by Charlemagne, as well as the Emperor's throne and tomb.
