This one is outside the centre, not the one in Grote Maarkt, and from previous reviews it seems that confuses some.   The signage from the main road to the entrance was poor. The entrance is at the back of the church, a few 100m from the main road, in Bisschop Bottemanneplein. We reserved a midday time slot but sadly we weren't able to use our Museumkaart for free or reduced entry. Only €4 though. The cathedral isn't as old as the one in Grand Maarkt but it is worth a visit.   Access to the towers was available but we didn't fancy the climb down and were short of time too.

We enjoyed touring the church during the day and then were lucky enough to return in the evening for a free organ recital - wonderful to hear this powerful organ in such a gorgeous setting and the sound resonance was great. It was also really cool to think about Mozart playing on this organ back in the day!

Was fortunate to visit while they were playing the organ. Very worth while. The cathedral is an amazing structure. It is so nice to hear the clock playing the bells.

Amazing place. The organ is magnificent and is one of the oldest in the world. Cost to get in is €2.50 and this money Goes towards the upkeep. Get a brochure and follow the numbered points for information as you walk around. The famous artist Frans Hals is buried here.
