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.

...yes the light show after 10pm is a must...however the charms of this building during the day is just as spellbinding. ...judge for yourselves from our photos...and it helps if you stay at the Mercure with a view of the Cathedral.

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. Absolutely amazing gothic style with a very rare organ built in 16th century

The cathedral was beautiful and inspiring. A must see in Amiens. Unfortunately, we were on a boat at the city moorage on a Friday night and were vandalized in the middle of the night. At 0230 two young men untied our boat and we were adrift. The experience ruined the entire trip to Amiens, and will never return. Luckily we... More

Notre Dame Cathedral is well worth the trio up to Amiens if you have the time spare in Paris. I grabbed a train ticket for €26.50 return, but it can be done cheaper with different times. Amiens is full of history, easy to make your way around and has plenty of places to eat or grab a coffee

Architecture is superb although interior was a little disappointing, stain glass windows were very poor and the interior needs refurbishing

We stayed up for the light show. Much better the routes. The commentary (French) was very clear and the imagining on the porticos was very evocative and thought provoking.
