A stunning gothic cathedral beautifully etched out of ochre sandstone. When you first see it outlined by the trees on the avenue approaching it, it is awe inspiring. Up close the detailing is amazing. Inside out of the sunlight the dimness makes it austere and god fearing...then the sun breaks through the beautiful stained glass windows. The remnants of the war was poignant, shell and bullet marks can still be made out in the main entry way, all part of a fascinating history that saw 33 kings of France crowned here. Please take the time to walk around the outside of the building, the back of the cathedral is amazing.

Stunning even from the outside and was lit up at night. Beautiful. Worth a walk round and some photos.

Firstly there is no charge to visit the cathedral, the interior and stained glass windows are just amazing. Of an evening there is often live music and a light show on the cathedral as facade. When is Reims you have to visit here

the world war one exhibition in the cathedral was fascinating. The people of Reims really suffered in the Great war. I had no idea.

This is well worth the time. The cathedral was almost completely distroyed and there is currently a photograph exhibit chronicaling the distruction and rebuilding. Dont miss the Marc Chagall windows in the back.
