Impressive and worth seeing if you are in the area! Make sure to go to the river side afterwards to check out the weekend market or one of the cute restaurants on the bank.

In the summer the cathedral is beautifull with her colours! A lightshow tells the history and the most of all how it was created.

World heritage site! luckily the choir was open for a Patrimoine weekend so we could see the famous choirstalls. Went back at night for the son et lumiere- just magical. Never seen one so good, showing the original colours of all that Gothic sculpture

The cathedral is huge and the outside is absolutely stunning , but in the evening you can go back to see it lit up as they think it was when it was originally built . So beautiful . It is free - it only happens in the summer months and the times change because it obviously needs to be dark... More

As with most cathedrals that we encountered this one was also undergoing external maintenance. Huge and historical building.

The three portals, the wonderful "rose of the sea" window, the "maze" floor and the crying angel. Not to be missed is the polychrome light show - Amiens, a cathedral in colours.

The cathedral is very tall. Although not as tall as Beauvaise Cathedral it is a complete cathedral (Beauvais does not have a nave). There is a lot of statutory on the west portal and at night this is lit up in all the glory of the 16th Century. Well worth a visit since it is one of France's most beautiful... More

We were in Amiens for a battlefields tour and visited the Cathedral. Its twice the size of Notre Dame in Paris and is beautiful. There are small grottos or altars for most of the combatives in WWI. We also saw the laser show at night which really needs to be seen to be believed. Amazing

We sat and drank beer outside the Cathedral during the afternoon and thought it was gorgeous. We then came back to see the light show and it was fantastic. I recommend sitting near to the correct speaker if you do not speak French - but even if you do not, it is still fantastic!

It has lots of interest inside and a free sound and light show in the evening which was amazing. There is a tower which is not free. You can climb upstairs for a good view. We didn't manage to do this.
