Palace of Tau Skip-the-Line Ticket

1. Palace of Tau Skip-the-Line Ticket

There was already a palace on the site in antiquity, though at the beginning of the 5th century, Bishop Nicasius lived there. There was also a cathedral dedicated to Our Lady. In memory of the baptism of Clovis in Reims, ca. 496, it became the tradition in the 9th century to crown the kings of France here, a tradition that was carried on until the coronation of Charles X in 1825. The palace was sumptuously decorated. Its T-shaped layout gave it its name, the Palace of Tau. Rebuilt and expanded with a chapel after a fire in 1210, the building was rearranged in flamboyant Gothic style at the end of the 15th century and then, at the end of the 17th century, further work gave it its current classical look. Although it was nationalized during the French Revolution, it was returned to the clergy in 1823. For the coronation of Charles X, it was decorated in Neo-Gothic style. It became State property in 1905 and, after the ravages of World War I, underwent restorations until 1972. The cathedral and the Palace of Tau are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Reims is a wonderful place with many shops cafes and restaurants conveniently placed along the way towards historical monuments. The Notre Dame de Reims was magnificent and the Palace of Tau was surprising marvellous. I will miss the city of Reims and the friendly local vibe. Stay until Sunday afternoon, the locals stroll to mass and have lunch at the cafe nearby. The passport gives you the opportunity to roam freely and visit many sites.

The Palace of Tau is a really beautiful experience. There are very surprising treasures within the Palace that’s worth visiting. The information desk will provide English information however most text and labels are in French and I found the app Google Translate to be most helpful.

Lots of free entrances/public transport, beyond a lot of discounts and free offered glasses of champaign in quite some restaurants

I will be simple I will come back to see it because it is very interesting and a lot of things still to learn

15 minutes fantastic view and distant view. Enjoy a glass of champagne with it, wonderful
