Built on the site of an old Rhine basilica dating from 1015, which was destroyed by fire, the construction of Notre-Dame took place over three centuries between 1176 and 1439. The spire of this pink sandstone edifice rises to 142m. Go and see the rose window, the stained-glass windows of the nave, the pillar of angels and the organ case decorated with curious characters and especially the astronomical clock of 1547: an explanatory video precedes the procession of the apostles (every day at 12 o'clock except Sundays and public holidays). The platform offers an exceptional view at a height of 66 m and is worth climbing the 332 steps leading up to it. At the spring and winter equinoxes, come and admire the mythical "green ray".
Cathedral open for free visits every day from 7am to 11.20am and from 12.40pm to 7pm. The platform is open from April 1st to September 30th, every day from 9:30 am to 8 pm (last ascent at 7:30 pm) and from October 1st to March 31st, every day from 10 am to 6 pm (last ascent at 5:30 pm). Presentation of the astronomical clock at 12pm by a video film, Apostles' parade at 12:30pm: 3 €, child 2 € (free - 6 years old). Climbing on the platform (332 steps): 8 €. Guided tour (contact the tourist office located at Place de la Cathédrale).
