Walking up to the cathedral is an experience in itself, it is just so grand. The front of it is extremely tall and has lots of detailed stone work. Once inside it is equally beautiful.

This cathedral is used for the wedding for royal families. At least that's what is shown in the entrance where we can see a lot of royal's wedding picture. Considering that, then no wonder that this church is amazing in term of interior. Definitely worth to see when you are in Brussels.

Spectacular example of an archetypal western European cathedral. Imposing and dramatic with a rich heritage to share with visitors.

Beautiful cathedral, close to the city centre, so easy to visit. Visited just before a service time, so also heard the wonderul bells, which you can hear blocks away.

The cathedral is huge and the well worth going to see. It has a nice feeling inside and we were made to feel welcome. The leaflet is in English and is really helpful when you are walking round the building. It is a quiet haven in the very busy city of Brussells.

Spectacular on the outside and does not disappoint inside. You have to go on a guided tour though. You have to book two weeks before-hand and you have to phone a number so make sure you go there as soon as you get to Brussels. It is definitely worth it though, you get to see part of the church nobody... More
