    When you visit the Notre Dame Cathedral in Strasbourg, be sure to go inside and look at that beautiful stained glass Rose Window that you see from the outside on my previous tip.

    Because of it's situation surrounded by other buildings, I found it impossible with my camera to photograph the whole of the cathedral and spire in one shot.

    The first stone of this Gothic masterpiece, was laid in 1015 and the spire was completed in 1439. The spire is 142m high.

    In the main picture you can see the Rose Window. The stainglass windows date from the 12th and 14th Centuries.

    The huge organ includes a case equipped with animated figures. The Renaissance astronomical clock's mechanism dates from 1842, and the parade of the Apostles takes place every day at half past noon.
