Please note that bookings can only be made on the day of the visit, no advance bookings. You can download the app from 7.30am on the day of your visit on your smartphone.

After climbing the 422 steps of the towers of Notre-Dame Cathedral, visitors are rewarded with one of the most stunning panoramic views of Paris. On the way up to the top are three not-to-be-missed features: The Salle Haute has amazing Gothic architecture with ribbed vaults; the Galerie des Chimères enables you to get close to the famous gargoyles, including the famous Stryge; and a few steps from the top, you can stop and admire the belfry, church bells and the famous 13-ton great bell 'Emmanuel'.
