"Notre-Dame Cathedral - Exterior" Notre-Dame Cathedral Tip by ATXtraveler

Notre-Dame Cathedral, Strasbourg: 132 reviews and 385 photos

 
 

This is definitely the highlight attraction of a visit to Strasbourg. It is a towering gothic cathedral, with beautiful spires and intricate carved facades. Taking up what appears to be a large block in the middle of the city, this masterpiece was started in 1277, and the largest spire was not completed until 1439. The largest spire reaches up 142m in the air, but it seems a little taller than that in real life! It is also fun to look out for the Wise and Foolish Virgins which are in the right portal of the building. The entire outside could take a long portion of the day to truly appreciate, so make sure to build in adequate time to view the entire area before venturing inside.
