Overview

Visitors who take a trip to the top of Reims Cathedral's tower will have the unusual chance to take in a masterpiece of gothic architecture, its collection of statues and its 20th century roof structure. The route of the visit, which overlooks the ""city of royal coronations"", crosses the whole of the cathedral's roof, passing by its recently regilded ornamentation. Not to be missed: the tour of "Palais of Tau" and the exhibition of sculptures, tapestries and the Treasury of Reims Cathedral. Cathedral designated world heritage site by UNESCO.

This is a MUST if you are visiting Reims. A beautiful, historic Cathedral of a truly vast scale. It is worth doing some homework in advance to understand the history.

Had a great walk through the towers and roof of the cathedral in Reims! Great views and interesting history. Not for the faint of heart. 220 Plus stairs to climb....but worth the view

Stunning tour!' Climbing the north tower of the west face of the cathedral you end up ~40 meters above ground level ( Over 200 steps!) The bell tower with remnants of WW1 damage, the roofconstruction, views over Reims, Just stunning. Will do it again!
