International Charlemagne Prize Aachen

Created in 1949, and first awarded in 1950, the Charlemagne Prize is one of the most prestigious prizes in Europe.

It compensates public personalities for their contribution in the service of West European understanding and common endeavour, and in the service of humanity and world peace. The prize was conceived by citizens of the German city of Aachen.

Named after Charlemagne, it highlights that Aachen was once the political center of Europe, from where Charlemagne attempted the unification of the continent. Charlemagne is burried in the Aachen cathedral.
