Didn't expect such a rich and detailed cathedral. It blew my mind away. Level of renovation is truly impressive. Could spend hours admiring the wealth and detail of this most amazing structure. Filled with importance, relics, memorials to the Great War, so very much worth the stop. Pile organ playing amazing music in the background... can't wait to return.

Compared to some cathedrals, the presentation at the Amiens cathedral is low key, and visitor numbers in November were low. However, it is an important and impressive building, and well worth a visit for lovers of gothic architecture. We enjoyed the organ practice as we visited.

I'm looking at 3 other reviews which describe Amiens Cathedral as soaring, nice and beyond reality. I completely agree; it is colossal in the very best way and I really believe that it is a better example of high gothic than Rouen, certainly is appears in better condition and more accessible to visitors. We walked in at the west door... More

The Norte Dame at Amiens is stunning. Although not as famous as the one in Paris, its height and beauty make it just as deserving of a visit. Our kids are small and we still managed to see everything we wanted to see. There are photos of the interior during WWI displayed throughout-the community did an amazing job of preserving... More

This is a great Cathedral to visit in the Centre of Amiens. I am just amazed at how they ever managed to build such big detailed buildings like this. It was very cold when we visited in January but even colder inside!

a beautiful Cathedral and the descriptions and photographs ( in English too) about how the artwork and sculptures were protected from bombing during WW1 was well done

After weeks of very hot weather we arrived here as the rain came pouring down. Regardless of the weather the cathedral is incredible and we couldn't wait for the illuminations in the evening. Inside it is a masterpiece structure and it is surrounded by a great selection of bars and restaurants.
