"Inside the Cathedral" Notre-Dame Cathedral Tip by DrewV
Notre-Dame Cathedral, Strasbourg: 132 reviews and 385 photos
Inside the Cathedral, examine the ultra-intricate medieval astronomical clock. For some reason, astronomical clocks were big business back in the day. Check out Prague's for comparison.
The clock tells the time, date, season, and planetary alignment, and at 12:30, figures of the twelve apostles bow to the figure of Christ, while below, figurines of stages of life pass from birth to death.
It's amazing how involved this clock is. It's a clock, calendar, planetarium, puppet show, and almanac all in one. The city fathers are justifiably proud of this one.
Directions: Inside the cathedral. You can't miss it.
