Aachen (kath.net/KNA) For the second time within four weeks unknown individuals have damaged the window of Aachen Cathedral. This time, stones were thrown in on Tuesday night by two choir hall windows on the north side of the cathedral, the chapter said on Thursday. Just at the end of January a disk pieces had been broken through by a stone's throw.
According to the information presented by Cathedral Master Builder, Helmut Maintz, the police have again been informed. He estimates the cost of repairs to around 3,500 euros. A window with ornaments in red and blue created by glass artist Anton Wendling 1949-1951 - it had to be repaired in January already. The other window was designed by the glass painter Walter Benner in the same period. The Aachen Cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
