Reims Cathedral

Climb the towers of this remarkable 13th-century cathedral, one of the most iconic religious buildings in France.

Reims Cathedral, also known as the Cathédral of Notre-Dame, is a glorious highlight of the city, with its gigantic façade towering over the surrounding streets. The intricate patterns and grand portals draw millions of visitors to the church with twin towers that can be seen from across the city. Sit at a pew and embrace the serene feeling of this spiritual complex.

Although it has been renovated and added to many times over the years, the original structure dates back to the 13th century. As one of the most important cathedrals in France, it was used for coronations of French royalty up until the 19th century.

Capture photos of the church’s spectacularly detailed Gothic façade. Admire its three ornate central portals; the fascinating sculptures and engravings around them contain many biblical references and allusions. All around the exterior of the church are depictions of religious figures including the apostles and prophets as well as scenes from the Last Judgment.

Enter the church through its imposing central portal, which leads into the vast nave. Above the door is a stunning rose window that is part of the portal arch. Stroll down its aisles and transepts and marvel at the décor in the spacious nave.

The church features exquisite stained-glass windows. Some date back as far as the 13th century, while others are 20th- and 21st-century additions. Don’t miss Marc Chagall’s stained-glass creations, which can be seen in the axial chapel.

The church is open daily except during services and on certain holidays. The main nave is free to enter. There is a small fee to ascend its towers for breathtaking views over the city.

Reims Cathedral is just south of the city hall in the city center. Make your way to the adjacent Tau Palace to see some of the mesmerizing statuary and tapestries from the cathedral. Find many other popular sites nearby to the cathedral, such as the St. Jacques Church and the Museum of Fine Arts.
