Practical Advice

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.
