We went there unintentionnally, it was a great discovery on our way, a very beautiful cathedral that reminded me of Notre-Dame de Paris from the outside. It's worth seeing, it's there that the royal wedding of the king Phillipe of belgium took place. Plus it's...More

This cathedral is probably the best know cathedral in Brussels due to its importance as a cathedral but also due to its sheer size and ornateness, huge pillars, wooden furniture and artwork.

It is a typical cathedral with frescoes on mirrors and the naves have the charasteristic of Brabantine Gothic style. Well worth a visit, and are for proxximity to the Grand Place (less than 5 minutes) makes it an unmissable stop.

Beautiful inside - well worth either a visit or attending a service. The acoustics were lovely and mass was very nice- however I was surprise with how few were attending. Lots to see if you walk round - obviously not possible during a service. The...More

Even if the kids cry “not another church” i really encourage a few minutes at this beautiful cathedral. The windows are in exquisite detail and it’s very similar to Notre Dame in size and design. Free entrance and a few quiet minutes...a needed respite in...More
