Cathedral of Notre-Dame, Former Abbey of Saint-Remi and Palace of Tau, Reims
The outstanding handling of new architectural techniques in the 13th century, and the harmonious marriage of sculptural decoration with architecture, has made Notre-Dame in Reims one of the masterpieces of Gothic art. The former abbey still has its beautiful 9th-century nave, in which lie the remains of Archbishop St Rémi (440533), who instituted the Holy Anointing of the kings of France. The former archiepiscopal palace known as the Tau Palace, which played an important role in religious ceremonies, was almost entirely rebuilt in the 17th century.

I went to the cathedral after I had seen the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and I must say I was astounded at how similar they were and how equally amazing both churches are. It's one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I live in Germany and it's on the route into Paris so it's perfect to stop on the way even if it's just for a little while.
Reims is a surprisingly enjoyable day trip from Paris. It is only 45 minutes away with the new TV est bullet train. The city is safe and clean- the Notre Dame Cathedral is worth it in itself to go visit there. But the other sites are also not to be missed. Like the Champagne region with its many caves to visit. You'll never forget it.
