Once home to the tallest church in the world, Strasbourg has an extraordinary variety of churches to offer. Read below to find out more about the five outstanding churches, that we chose in France‘s capital of the Alsace region, amongst an exquisite selection of Gothic and Roman churches.
Once the world’s tallest building at 142 meters, from 1647 up to 1874, the Cathédrale Notre Dame is a magnificent Roman Catholic cathedral in Strasbourg. Even though significant parts of the church are still in Romanesque architecture, it is considered to be a prime example of High Gothic architecture. The church’s interior is marked by beautiful stained glass windows, that mostly date back to the 14th century, the tombstone of Conrad de Lichtenberg and an 18-meter astronomical clock. Used for religious purposes for over 3,000 years, having been both a Roman sanctuary and a Christian temple dedicated to the Virgin Mary, Cathédrale Notre-Dame is still one of the major places of worship for Christianity.
