This cathedral dominates the Strasbourg skyline. The exterior is beautiful with very tall steeple & intricate stone carvings. Walk inside however and it's very austere. Stained glass windows are only color--very cold- even the altar. The astronomical clock is underwhelming at best. The highlight for me was the nativity cresh on display. Unfortunately the steps to the tower were closed.

We had a fabulous visit chasing Christmas Markets. They are all over in the old city. The area in front of the cathedral had a great market and the cathedral itself is awe inspiring.

Definitely worth a visit. I spent a good 45 minutes exploring the cathedral and absorbing the details of the design. While the interior was nice, for me, the exterior is what really made this an unbelievable experience. Make sure to take time to walk around the exterior and see the cathedral from as many different angles as possible.

Maybe because I kept comparing this with The Sagrada Familia or the Montserrat Monastery in Barcelona, I wasn't impressed. You could skip this if you are pressed for time.

The Cathedral was really very impressive. Key features include the wonderful stone masonry, with hundreds of sculptures decorating the outside, the astronomical clock, a very large organ, the pulpit (look out for the carving of a little dog) and the stained glass windows. Well worth a visit.

The building really must be walked around. The decorative sculpture is amazing. Inside, the stained glass windows are beautiful and the organ pipes really nice. The clock is a bit underwhelming. We took the noon presentation - 2€ - but it had a sappy film, we waited around for a long time and then it did some neat things. Happy... More

This majesties cathedral has to be visited, already only for the glas paintings of the windows. The rosette at entrance is magnificence.

The height of the ceilings--the size of the pillars--wow. We were underwhelmed by the Astronomical Clock-one bell at 11:00. The sheer size of the cathedral is so Grand. Worth the walk through.

Christmas market just being set up & security very high with armed police & army around Great atmosphere in the street, with entertainers all around - an elderly, very French saxophone player; a wonderful Cellist on the cathedral steps; a squeeze box player - all adding to a wonderful atmosphere around a stunning and imposing cathedral
