“Traveler description is wrong”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2014

There are two Saint Nicholas church in Brussels. One of them is near Grand Place and another one is near Place St-Nicolas. Don't confuse these two places with each other.

“Take a look....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The church is located right next to the bourse, I wouldn't have come here just to enter it, but since it was on rue Marche de Herbs which we passed every day on our way to and from the xmas market,therefore we entered this church, very nice one.

“A Quiet Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The Church of St. Nicholas does not call much attention but it is a nice church to see and to spend some quiet time. There is not much art in the church but many of the local people come here to pray.

“Definitely one of the favourite of Brussels people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

At the heart of Brussels, one of the most beautifully restored churches downtown. Built and rebuilt between the 12th and 18th centuries it is an oasis of peace and harmony where you may not only pray but also admire the statue of the Holy Virgin, wonderful stained-glasses, old paintings from the Rubens school and the Saint Nicolas chapel. Some flyers (availlable in several languages) will help you discover the history and the hidden treasures of this lovely place of worship. Just avoid speaking too loudly because the caretaker is polite and helpful but rather watchful and strict as regards respect inside the building. I live in Brussels and I'm a regular at this beautiful church.
