The most impressive sight of Strasbourg is its cathedral. The Strasbourg cathedral is an outstanding masterpiece of Gothic art. The construction of the Romanesque cathedral, of which only the crypt and the footprint remain, began in 1015. The spire of the current building, in a Gothic style, was completed in 1439. Described as “a skillful combination of monumental size and delicateness” by Victor Hugo, its façade offers a fantastic wealth of ornamental features. The 142 m spire is a masterpiece of architectural elegance and intricacy. Up until the 19th century, the cathedral was the highest building in the whole of the Christian world. Alongside the cathedral there are more amazing buildings and churches to visit. You may want to explore the Protestant Church of Saint-Thomas, which is an excellent example of Alsatian Gothic art. Its choir is home to the impressive Mausoleum of the Maréchal de Saxe, a masterpiece of 18th-century baroque funerary art. While sightseeing in the city of Strasbourg, make sure to walk to the Kammerzell House as well. The rich decoration on the façade, both secular and sacred, was inspired by the Bible, Greek and Roman Antiquity and the Middle Ages. Restoration work carried out in 1892 made the whole building darker, but this decoration still testifies to the cultural influences of a 14th century Strasbourg burgher. Inside the building, you can admire remarkable frescoes painted by Leo Schnug in about 1905.
