Stained glasses of the cathedral St Nicholas

Guided tour of the stained glasses of the cathedral St Nicholas.

Enjoy a guided tour of the stained glass windows of the cathedral and learn all the history behind these master pièces

In his stained glass windows of the cathedral, Joseph Mehoffer moves away from the basic effects and towards the illusion. The artist thus knew, by a large number of evangelical and historical texts, how to enchant us by the secrets of the symbols.

During the visit, the guide will give you explanations on the symbolism of the drawings, forms and signs, will bring you into the history of the stained glasses and for the final touch let you discover the world of sacred Art nouveau.
