Meant to resemble its namesake in Paris, the Cathédrale Notre Dame de Strasbourg, is a towering architectural marvel. Do yourself a favor and venture the 66 meters up where you can get some truly fantastic views of the city. #awesomepic #france #architecturalphotos
The interior of Notre Dame in Strasbourg is marvelous. In the true Gothic style, the soaring vault, impressive alter, and the large stained glass window really caught my eye. Unfortunately I didn't have the right camera for the low-light conditions inside and I didn't want to be disrespectful with my flash. The moving tribute to US soldiers from the Second World War was also something I noticed, of course. #architecture #churches #france
Sophie's French Travel Notes
Strasbourg Strasbourg, located near the French-German border, is a 30-minute train ride from Colmar, the theme of Zhao Wei's Chinese restaurant.
The most worthwhile sight to visit here, the non-Strasbourg church Cathdrale Notre-Dame de Strasbourg. The church was built in 1176 and was not completed until 1439. It is built from the pink sandstone of the Vosges Mountain. It looks dark red and black in the distance and looks old and solemn. The French writer Hugo once commented on the church as a huge and slim building in an amazing building.
It is also the sixth-highest Catholic church in the world. The highest part is the Gothic minaret 142 meters. It needs to be very far away and with a wide-angle lens to complete the film. Inside the church, visitors are required to remain quiet and even broadcast, asking everyone not to make a sound.

Strasbourg Cathedral, France: This most novel and most German Gothic church is best described in four beautiful words: stone lace. Goethe also made a sigh: such as an extraordinary, arched tree of God rising from the ground.
From my superficial perspective, it is more beautiful than Cologne Cathedral. This is a church that allows you to watch it for a long time. It takes a lot of time to carefully appreciate every detail, but it is so delicate that you can't move your eyes. On the square below the church, there are various small shops selling souvenirs. This is the home of the church, which sells beautiful hand-painted ones, which makes people love it.
This church was built in the late 11th century, the altar is Roman style, and the nave is Gothic. The church is an asymmetrical structure with only one spire. It is said that only one tower was built because of the shortage of funds at the time of construction. Later, when the later generations wanted to build one more symmetry, they found that the design of the church could not carry another spire, so they Had to continue to add more decorations to the outer wall of the church, the church became the look of today, with a complex and beautiful exterior wall decoration.
