TO ENSURE THAT YOUR STAY

IS AS PLEASANT AS POSSIBLE...

Here's a good idea: after spending a lovely day enjoying that special Christmas feeling, go over to Amiens Notre-Dame cathedral and
watch the amazing light show which takes place every year from 1st December to 1st January.

Once the sun goes down, 15 years since the first “Amiens, the Cathedral in Colour” light and sound display began, come and watch Notre Dame d’Amiens be bathed in a brand new array of colour.

Designed by the Société Spectre Lab, with a soundtrack by the Start-Rec Agency, the original and unprecedented “Chroma” display will take you on an exceptional journey that overflows with emotion. Fascinating and emblematic scenes will play out before your eyes upon the Gothic architecture. Admire the cathedral’s mysterious and enigmatic façade and let yourselves be taken on a sensory journey and be swept away by its incredible beauty.
