Fodor's Expert Review St. Stephan Cathedral

Breisach Religious Building/Site/Shrine
Breisach's major landmark, St. Stephan Cathedral rises up over the old town offering stunning panoramic views of the Rhine Valley and Black Forest to the east and the Vosges Mountains to the west. St. Stephan's was begun in the 12th century in the Romanesque style and completed in the 15th century, hence the gothic elements that can be seen throughout. The cathedral's inner riches include an ornately carved chancel screen and altar, both considered masterpeices of late Gothic stonemasonry, as is its elaborately carved vaulted ceiling.
