History and tradition
Musée de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame
Musée de l'Oeuvre Notre-Dame
Located at the foot of the cathedral, the Œuvre Notre-Dame Museum offers a walk through seven centuries of art in Strasbourg and the Upper Rhine region. Its rich medieval and Renaissance collections bear witness to the prestigious past of the city, which was one of the most important artistic centres of the German Empire from the 13th to the 16th century.

Masterpieces of statuary from Strasbourg Cathedral stand side by side with the finest examples of Upper Rhine art from the 15th and 16th centuries.
The tour, a synthesis of all the arts, is in harmony with the museum's architectural setting.

Sculptures by the virtuoso artist Nicolas Gerhaert from Leiden, paintings by Conrad Witz, Hans Baldung Grien and the still life master Sébastien Stoskopff, stained glass windows by Peter Hemmel d'Andlau... the Œuvre Notre-Dame Museum is a remarkable testimony to Alsatian art, from the Romanesque period to 1681 - the year Strasbourg became part of the kingdom of France.
