    Tourist office

    by Dabs Updated Jan 12, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Stop by the tourist office if you need a map, need hotel reservations or want to visit a champagne house but didn't make advance reservations.

    The people working there were extremely nice and helpful although they told us to take a bus between St. Remi's and Veuve-Clicquot which couldn't have been more than a 5 minute walk.

    The tourist office is right next to Notre Dame, if you are coming from the train station, you should see it before you get to the entrance of the cathedral.

    The Notre-Dame Cathedral

    by Luchonda Updated Jul 13, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Gothic Notre-Dame

    Favorite thing: Your first day in Reims should be dedicated to the visit of "musts" such as the four monuments listed as World Heritage by UNESCO : the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Tau Palace, the Saint-Remi Basilica and the Saint-Remi Museum, the latter named after the bishop who baptized Clovis. Later, you will discover the secrets of the making of the king of wines, and get a taste of it, in one of the many Champagne Houses of Reims.

    by MEdelmann Updated Aug 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The glass window

    Favorite thing:
    Here you can see the chagall-window again. for a different perspective and it is a little bit hidden here. I had wonderful light conditions, which were perfect for taking good pics.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------


    Fondest memory:
    Marc Chagall, he is also known as Mark Zakharovich Shagall (this is his russian name) was a french-russian painter and stained glass artist. He lived between 1887 and 1985.

    During his long life (he came 98 years old) he created lots of paintings and glass works which could be seen in museums worldwide. Some of it greatest masterpieces are in the Guggenheim Museum in New York, in Australia, Switzerland, to name just a few of the countries.

    The inside part of the Cathedral

    by MEdelmann Updated Aug 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The cathedral

    Fondest memory:
    The cathedral also haves some beautiful gothic interiors ......

    When taking pics and whe you have only one camera (like me), a 200 ASA film is a good choice. You can make good pics outside and also inside, because shutter speed is faster but the quality of pics is good enough to scan.

    But maybe a digital camera is more practical ...

    Cathedrale Notre Dame

    by MEdelmann Updated Aug 29, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cathedral

    Favorite thing:
    The main attraction of Reims is its cathedral "Notre Dame", a masterpiece of french gotic architecture. They began to build it in 1211 ..... and no wonder that the UNESCO has put it on their World Heritage list. It is absolutely worth to see ......
    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    Fondest memory:
    The two gothic towers were richly decorated with lot of wonderful gothic ornaments. You will see this magnificance if you click on the picture!

    The cathedral inside

    Favorite thing:
    Here you can see another photo of the cathedral. It shows the church hall with a view to the wonderful glass window of Marc Chagall, which is at the end of the church.


    Fondest memory:
    Does it needs words to describe the beauty of the church? Gothic architecture is very interesting in my opinion and in Europe there can be found so much examples of this great architectural era ...

    Mystic cathedral in Reims ...

    Favorite thing:
    I like this photo because it looks a little bit mystic. This cathedral surprised in many ways. Do you also think so?

    The light was very dim and so I had to use the tripod to get everything sharp. I choosed a smaller aperture so that shutter speed was nearly 3 seconds!

    Sisters can annoy sometimes ...

    The cathedral

    Fondest memory:
    My sister (who went also with me) was going on my nerves. She could not understand that someone can take so many pictures of one building. But I like photography and also want to show people from outside architectural details. I guess she wanted also take pictures but she had no camera.... I let talk her and took my pictures .... and today I am happy that I did it .....

    What I learned: Make always shure that you have co-drivers with you which share the SAME interests like you! You will have no problems then....
