Strasbourg Notre Dame Cathedral Excursion Reviews

Visit the Notre Dame Cathedral, a superb example of French Gothic architecture that took 300 years to complete. The cast iron spire is the largest in France and the central portal features an elaborately painted "Tree of Jesus." Explore the interior, which features a Lady Chapel, the tombs of Rouen's archbishops, secure behind wrought iron gates, and impressive 15th-century stained glass windows.
Never get tired of touring these amazing buildings and hearing about their history.

The cathedral was amazing and touring the older part of the city was very good. The only negative was touring through the modern part of the city to get to the old part was not enjoyable. The architecture did not match the the older parts of the city and we would have preferred to have spent more time in the older part of the city. Read Less

This cathedral was amazing. The clock works were like nothing I could have imagined and yet they were hundreds of years old.

We took the self-guided tour of the Cathedral and enjoyed an impromptu organ recital. The stain glass in this church was amazing. We also opted to climb the 330 steps to the top of the cathedral for an amazing view. Don't attempt this climb if you are afraid of heights. The stairs going down area open with only metal bars to keep you in the spiral staircase providing an extremely wide view (which to me was amazing). Read Less

Skip the clock experience. It was so crowded, I almost passed out! The movie beforehand was entirely in French and the actual clock was very anti-climactic!

Strasbourg, France is headquarters to a number of European institutions such as the European Parliament. Our bus tour took us past several of the buildings on our way to Notre Dame Cathedral. It was a holiday so mass was being celebrated so we were unable to get a tour inside the building. We were able to walk around it and see the grand statues, stained glass and gargoyles. The tour allowed time for us to shop and eat before going back to the boat. Read Less
