A word of warning, the cathedral is under renovation. Despite that fact, it is still a very impressive, towering sight, worthy of your time.

This cathedral is a little far away from the city centre. However, it was worth value to take the Metro and the walk through a very nice little wood. It looks like Sacre Couer de Paris.

We visited this church when visiting the Antique market stalls. An impessive church inside, however the side chapels are well worth a visit.

Notre Dame is a lovely old cathedral with stunning stained glass windows. It is situated in the beautiful section of the city known as the Grand Sablon area. Our hotel windows looked out to the cathedral and the little park it overlooks. If you are in the area (and there are lovely little shops and cafes to explore) it is... More

Just a peaceful and beautiful church to visit. Altar and pulpit spectacular. The surrounding area of Sablon is a nice area to visit for an afternoon or evening.

There is hardly any visitor here which is a shame. This is one of the most beautiful gothic church in Belgium. It is only about 6 min walks from Central Station, so... More

Easy to walk to from the Grand Palace (about a 15 min walk). Not very crowded and an enjoyable and beautiful church to visit. Add it to your list!

This place is gorgeous, and has vivid and colourful leadlights on all windows. Some small sections are closed to tourists however there is enough to see and experience. Along the wall, pictures tell the story of Christ. They start at the opposite end to the entry. Entry is free.

Worth making a trip to see it, the building is fantastic and the windows have some great stain glass. Have a look inside if outside of service times, has some love statues and reliefs.
