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.

I've been to 5 different Notre Dame cathedrals in France and each is unique and different. This cathedral is amazing. It has tapestries and a beautiful alter area. This cathedral also has a huge cuckoo clock that is amazing. I stayed and say the :15 & :30. Would have loved to stay to see the top of the hour but had other things planned.
Grand Cathedral with wonderful statues on the facade and beautiful tapestries hanging inside which were different from most we visited. It was quiet on a weekday we visited, giving us time to slowly walk around. Nice stained glass although some parts were damaged.
