The Cathedral of Our Lady of Strasbourg is symbolic of the city itself. Its spire soars 142 meters into the sky, making it the second tallest cathedral in France and, until the 19th century, the highest in the Western world. Its Gothic architecture is just as remarkable on the outside with its numerous sculptures and unique bell tower, as it is on the inside with its famous rose window, which has a diameter of 12 meters.
You can also discover a magnificent astronomical clock dating from the 16th century with moving figures that never fail to amaze. Those with a head for heights can climb the several hundred steps to the platform at 66 meters, and be rewarded with a breathtaking view across Strasbourg’s rooftops.
