The cathedral (Münster).

Straßburger Münster - Straßburg Führungen

It’s breathtaking with its unusually richly decorated gothic façade. It makes this building a true piece of art and lets it appear as if it were made of stone lace. This church building was completed in 1439. Its steeple measures 142m and until the 19th century it was the highest steeple within Christianity. The Strasbourg cathedral represents with its characteristically and asymmetrical shape (the south tower has never been built) a landmark within the Alsace region, which can be viewed from the banks of the Rhine river approx. 3 km away as well as from the Vogues mountains and the Black Forest.

The cathedral dedicated to Our Lady (French “Cathedral Notre Dame) in Strasbourg is a roman-catholic church and is one of the most important cathedrals within the European history of architecture, as well as one of the largest buildings made of sand stone worldwide.

The church as well as Strasbourg in general combines cultural influences of both Germany and France. The cathedral has been built between 1178 and 1439 of rosé-colored sandstone taken from the Vogues region and stands on the foundation of a burned-down previous church building that was built between 1015 to 1028. and in turn replaced a church built during Carolingian times that burned down in 1007. The current building was first constructed in Romanic style and completed in Gothic fashion.
