The Notre-Dame Cathedral's busy times
Avoid visiting the Cathedral on major religious holidays (Christmas, Easter, All Saints’ Day, Ascension Day, etc.) and a couple of days before and after, as there are lots of believers who come to Notre-Dame on these days.
It is more crowded during the services, especially on Sunday.
Tuesdays and Wednesday are the calmest days of the week.
From April until the end of October, Cathedral gets quite crowded already at 09:00.
Mornings are less busy than the afternoons.
The French Spring holidays as well as the Easter Weekend and the 14th of July Weekend are extremely busy in terms of visitors.
