From 29 to 31 May 2015, Aachen will become an international stage for the stars of equestrian sport. Every year, the biggest names in horseriding descend on the city in the hope of winning one of the coveted gold medals. Disciplines such as show jumping, dressage and vaulting promise plenty of exciting action for spectators.
When visiting Aachen, be sure to explore the historical old quarter around the cathedral. Aachen Cathedral was Germany's first UNESCO World Heritage site – and deservedly so. Built in around 800, the cathedral is of great importance in terms of art history and is a true sight to behold.
