Each of them will receive a Cathedral Guide Licence upon completion of the training in January of 2016. Then it is getting serious for everybody and they will go into action as certified “Child Guides”. The new guides will increase the number of guides to 41 in the team of “Child Guides”. The young experts guide interested children and adults through Aachen Cathedral, explaining the history, the religious background and architecture of this very special church. The “Child Guides” offer their own unique perspective on the church and are capable to put themselves in the position of other children attending the tours. “We are hoping to enthuse more young people about Aachen Cathedral with this special form of guided tours”, says Anne Ziemons, member of the organization team for the “Child Guides”.
The “Child Guide”-tours are being held regularly, Wednesdays at 5 p.m. and Sundays at 3.30 p.m. Interested parties are kindly asked to register at least 3 days prior to the tour at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Price of admission is 3€ per person; group (10+) rates are 2€ per person.
