Climbing up to the cathedral’s platform

  • Climbing up to the cathedral's platform

    Climbing up to the Cathedral’s platform and guard house is a thrilling experience.

    Since it was built, the platform has been a popular tourist attraction, and, until recently, a strategic fire lookout.
    The guard’s house, located in the spot planned for the second spire, reflects a rich history going back to the 16th century.
    The spiral staircase takes you deep into the building and up to the top, where you’ll enjoy amazing views. From up high on the platform, the panorama is breathtaking. You’ll look down over the rooftops of Strasbourg, and when the weather is fine, you’ll see all the way to the Vosges and the Black Forest (in Germany).

    NEW FEATURES: use augmented reality to travel back in time to the Strasbourg of the past; (virtually) carve your name in stone and admire a hoist from the late 15th century.

    Climb to 66 metres (330 steps): good physical condition required.

    Entrance on Place du Château Square.
