It's a scene out of a bible! You don;t have to be religious to admire the beuty of this cathedral. Originally stated in 1200, it has some of the most amazing architecture and the scene on the ceilings and around the cathedral are magnificent. And the astronomical clock installed in 1354 is refered to as "the clock of kings". It is worth visiting it around the time it strikes. The whole cathedral is a perfect reason to visit Strasbourg and it is certainly NOT to be missed! My advice go to Strasbourg to see the Cathedral if for no other reason, it's certainly worth the effot.
