Reim has not one but two UNESCO World Heritage sites, the second being the magnificent gothic Notre Dame Cathedral. You cannot fail to be bowled over by the site of over 34 French coronations from 816 to 1825. The extravagance of the facade is unrivalled with its flamboyant angel statues and kaleidoscope stained glass. The most famous coronation was that of Charles VII with Joan of Arc by his side. A statue of the legendary French heroine in full body armour can be see inside the cathedral and she is also memorialised outside in the square.
Alongside its festive champagne connections, Reims also has a more sober history. On May 7th 1945 it was the city where Nazi Germany finally conceded defeat and ended WWII.
