Every evening during the Christmas Market a new polychromatic show, “Chroma” will shown at the cathedral.  It uses colour and and infinite palette of nuances to trace the history of the cathedral. The Gothic architecture lends itself to strange optical illusions whilst the music adds emotion to the experience.
