Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg, Strasbourg
Trip Planner: Europe / France / Grand Est / Bas-Rhin / Strasbourg / Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg
Nestled amidst an array of charming medieval houses, the Romanesque architecture of Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg, a masterpiece of Erwin von Steinbach, is widely considered to be among the finest examples of high or late Gothic Architecture in Europe. Standing at 142 m (466 ft), it was the world's tallest building from 1647 to 1874, only to be surppassed by St. Nikolai's Church in Hamburg. Today, it is among the tallest churches in the world and is still the highest still-standing struture built entirely during the Middle Ages. The cathedral was described by Victor Hugo as a "gigantic and delicate marvel" and by Goethe as a "sublimely towering, wide-spreading tree of God". Visible from across the plains of Alsace, the Cathedral can also be seen from the Vosges Mountains and from the Black Forest across the Rhine. While you're here, don't forget to take note of the exquisite astrological clock built by Schwilgue of Strasbourg in 1842. Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Strasbourg Edition.

Cathedrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg Reviews
展望台まで狭い螺旋階段をひたすら上ります。時間によっては後ろからどんどん他の観光客の方が上がって来るので、ちょっと休憩、、、は厳しいかもしれません。 しかし、その先で待っている絶景はとても素晴らしかったです！ more »It goes up a narrow spiral staircase to the observatory. Depending on the time, the rest of the tourists are coming up from behind, so it may be a bit hard 、、、 break. However, the great view waiting for the destination was very wonderful!
Vraiment un bel endroit à voir. Sur a 12h30 tous jours sauf le dimanche pour voir l horloge sonne. Travaux terminés en 1439, elle mesure 142m. Magnifique édifice aussi bien de jour que de nuit. more »Really a nice place to see. On a 12:30 every day except Sunday to see the clock rings. Work completed in 1439, it measures 142m. Beautiful building both day and night.
A beautiful traditional cathedral. Very large and ornate and full of history. The tolling of the bells is especially beautiful. Inside the glow from the many stained glass windows is fantastic, as well as the old painted altar area. Don't miss out on the historic "Pretzel Man" automaton near the ornate organ pulpit thing, that is special to the city and has been a part of many sermons
Nice and Historic place to visit. I really enjoyed. area is very tidy, neat and clean. surrounded by so many world class shops to buy souvenirs and have food and snacks. near place for children joy rides also. wow i really enjoyed here. very helping people everywhere.
