Scottish reporter soaks up German history in Aachen

Take a tour of Aachen, Charlemagne's 8th century capital, with a reporter from the Inverness Courier, from the city's nasty-tasting hot spring water to Frederick Barbarossa's 12th century chandelier.

From the article:

The Romans came here for the hot springs and called the place Aquae Granni after a Celtic goddess. The emperor Charlemagne chose it as his capital in 768 AD and it remained the coronation place of German kings for another 600 years.
