Trip Report The cathedral of Amiens in color

Jump to last reply

This week, I went to Amiens one night specifically to see the light show at Notre Dame d'Amiens, which is now in its 15th year. The train takes about 70 minutes and costs only 10 euros from Paris if you book ahead. I got my tickets only about 3 weeks ago, which spared me from paying the walk-up fare of 18.50€. I spent the night there because the show is at 10 p.m. at this time of year (10:30 p.m. in July). However, if you go in December, when they also have the show, I think it is at 6 p.m.

All you have to do is gather on the square in front of the cathedral and wait for the clock to strike 10. The show lasts about 40 minutes.

I took a number of pictures, which you can find here:
