It is only open in the afternoons for a short time and you must enter fromD' Alsace...tram side. The tower is separate so that damage is not caused by the vibration of the bell.

We went to visit the cathedral and there was a mass being celebrated, so we sat and took part. We were lucky, their organ is magnificent and we could listen to beautiful music.
