France – Strasbourg, Grande-Île and Neustadt

The Strasbourg Cathedral in pictures. A true Gothic masterpiece.

Where to Start? The Strasbourg Cathedral basics.

We did a lot of looking around the town, but I was drawn back to the spectacular cathedral for at least two hours on all three days of our visit. Even at that, I don’t feel like I saw it all.

A breathtaking cathedral, historical landmarks of Petite France quarter, the oldest Christmas market and lots more… the French city will make you fall in love with it.

The interior of the cathedral is breathtaking, with its historic stained-glass windows, sky-high ceiling and attractions such as the Pillar of Angels and Astronomical Clock.
