Aachen Cathedral / Dom Advent Calendar

From Brück and Sohn (Printers in Meissen, Germany 1793-2018) a charming Advent Calendar of the Aachen Cathedral, traditionally known in English as the Cathedral of Aix-la-Chapelle. The Aachen Dom / Cathedral is on the World Heritage List. This delightful advent calendar is 10" x 15".

The Aachen Cathedral was the first German monument to be included in the list of UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 1978. Its origins date back to the 8th century when Charles the Great ruled. The calendar's windows are carefully placed to preserve the beauty of the image when the windows are open. Behind the windows are Christmas motifs and things that belong to the cityscape of Aachen - like the monument of Charles and Great and the Prtintenmädchen Brück and Sohn

After celebrating their anniversary in October 2018 of 225 years, the 7th generation Annette and Helmut Brück are now retired and have closed their doors. An era has come to an end.

The Brücks plan to explore the history of their company and offer a small museum and postcard archive which are preserved in Meissen and which is open to the public by appointment. 

My Growing Traditions has scavenged where we could and replenished our inventory in hopes of being able to make them available to you as long as possible.
