Car Rental

by nino224

Hi

I'll be in Reims the first week in May, and I want to rent a car. I'm having trouble finding an agency. Is there one in town or do I have to go to the airport? And how far is the airport from the town center?

RE: Car Rental

by GavinCB

We are also going to Reims in May 07 (4th) and we booked a car from Hertz from Melborne on the phone. They have an international booking centre which gave us a price which was cheaper than what we could get on the net.(And they speak english)

The Cathedral of Our Lady is the most famous landmark of the city. A masterpiece of gothic art built in the 13th century it is famous for its statues and majestuous lines. Nearly all French kings were crowned under its elegant vaults.

The Cathedral

by Bregman

When in Reims don't miss the Notre-Dame Cathedral. This is where the kings of France were crowned. Right next to the cathedral you can find a little museum with some of the original ornaments of the cathedral.

Sculptures Of the West End of the Cathedral

by hquittner

One generation after the west end of Chartres Cathedral was in place, the creatipn of life size sculptured figures were begun on the lateral wings of the west portals of Reims. At the same time, in the 1220's, Chartres was creating excellent more advanced works around the North and South doors of their Cathedral. Those at Reims progressed more slowly and with four sequential sets of workers. One statue of a "Smiling Angel" is often pictured in Art Books. So attractive was the idea of creating sculpture that by the time Reims was finished, there were over 2300 on that building. More original than the facade at Reims was the covering of the inner side of the west entry with many sets of statuary around the Great Rose Window and the lateral portals.

Palais du Tau

by aliante1981

Constructed in 1690 as the residence of the bishops of Reims (they certainly had a gusto for living well and in luxury, I must observe) and set beside the cathedral, this stone mansion, Palais de Tau, contains many statues that, until recently, decorated the cathedral facade. Those there now are mostly copies. Also on display are many holy relics associated with Reims, including a 12th-century chalice for the communion of French monarchs and a talisman supposedly containing a relic of the True Cross that Charlemagne is said to have worn. This seemed to me a good enough reason to visit the Palais de Tau.

Another one is that the place has strong links to the French monarchy. In fact, the tradition was that the future monarch usually spent the night before the coronation in this palace. The highlights include Salle du Tau and a Gothic Chapel. Salle de Tau was a banqueting hall now housing a museum of tapestries, most of them of 15th century. Here coronation banquetes were held.

Iýve often wondered about the name, thoughý Later I found out that it was because the palace is actually ýTý-shaped, and ýtauý is the Greek letter standing for ýTý. Admission fee is 6 Euros for adults, 4 Euros students and ages 18-25 (just bring proof of your age and student status), and free for ages 17 and under.
