Right in the heart of Brussels, and very beautiful- worth a visit. The Cathedral shows up in many old paintings of Brussels and is iconic to the city. No admission costs.

A very impressive cathedral with wonderful stained glass windows. For Christmas it has on display nativity scenes from all over the world which was very interesting and unusual. There is no formal charge to enter but it definitely worth a donation.

An absolutely stunning church and a must see regardless of denomination. Beautiful lead light windows throughout and lovely Christmas theme in December. Nativity schemes through the Cathedral. Definitely worth a visit and a donation.
