“Lovely old cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This is free to get in and one euro to see the vaults and treasury.

We did not see the treasury but did go to the vaults to look at the excavations. Very well presented.

The cathedral is very impressive from the outside and there are some very beautiful aspects inside such as the glass windows and altar.

Worth a visit.

Small point - the nearest toilet is in the station down the road.

“Imposing building”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Wonderful architecture with great photo opportunities from the outside. We didn't have the time, or energy, to tour the inside but a quick peep revealed amazing views.

“Beautiful cathedral!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

The most beautiful church I ever visited! The gothic façade is astonishing. The interior is very clear and bright, with lots of light. The cathedral organ is enormous. Worth the visit if you are in Brussels.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

While large and beautiful, this cathedral provides a quiet, inspring, and holy atmosphere. Visiting here was a wonderful experience.
