Impressive bulk of a church!
Jan 2020
When viewed from exterior,St.Michael's church,just by the bridge of the same name,certainly appears to afford a welcome visit- however,we could go no further than the entrance lobby-the interior doors were locked and alarmed,and all that we were able to do was to view the interior by peeking through the glazed central doors- visiting times and days are extremely limited,so check before going there. Overall,a bit disappointing!

Views of the outisde of were all we could see sadly we couldn't get inside despite waiting until after the posted time it would open 1400. Perhaps next trip we'll be lucky enough to get to see the inside

Marvelous church not far from the famous Cathedral. Very dominant-looking and with outstanding architecture.

Majestic church
Nov 2018
Very big, very Gothic, very high, very everything! It has a central place by the river, with the same name bridge just in front of the church. You can enter and see the amazing Gothic arcs and the temple

better on the inside!
Aug 2019
Lovely church on the inside. Huge, and intriguingly rises up out of the water. Quite an imposing place and worth seeing.

Shabby Entrance Facade...
Sep 2018
. . . does not foretell the glory within... or even give a hint of it's strategic, possible most picturesque location, overlooking the St Michael’s Bridge. Sober late Gothic on the outside and rich Neo-Gothic on the inside.

Which came first, the church or the bridge...no one could answer.

Fascinating historical church
Jun 2019 • Friends
Although building of the church started in 1440, it has suffered various setbacks, including partial destruction by the Calvinists in the 16th century, such that the tower on the west front appears somewhat dumpy, because it has never been finished.

Inside is a fine brick interior, with fine stained glass and paintings, baroque sculpture and a fine organ. One of the jewels of the church is yet another of those wonderful sculptural pulpits that are found in many churches.

The five central churches in Ghent are cared for by the Monumental Churches of Ghent (MKG) which aims to improve access to the heritage of these churches and ensure their enjoyment into the future.

St. Michael’s Church near city center of Ghent
Aug 2018 • Couples
My wife and I visited Ghent on a day trip from Brussels last summer. St. Michael’s Church is an impressive Gothic design. It is next to the St. Michael’s Bridge near the city center of Ghent.
