Strasbourg Cathedral & the Astronomical Clock
"A prodigy of the gigantic and the delicate" as Victor Hugo put it, Strasbourg Cathedral is an absolute masterpiece of Gothic art, soaring above the city’s old town. Up until the 19th century, the cathedral was the highest Christian edifice in the world. Discover its mesmerising façade, complete with hundreds of allegorical figures telling fascinating biblical narratives. On sunny days, an iridescent light filters through the stained glass windows, illuminating the cathedral’s nave in a way that spurs contemplation. Don’t miss the intricate Renaissance-style astronomical clock - one of the largest in the world - and its daily procession of apostles scheduled at 12:30 pm. The top of the tower offers splendid views of the city, the Rhine plains, and the Vosges mountains.
