The 115 metres high brick tower of the Church of Our Lady is a perfect illustration of the craftsmanship of Bruges' artisans. The church displays a valuable art collection: Michelangelo's world-famous Madonna and Child, countless paintings...more

One of the most prized pieces of art in the history of the world and the part of the Church that holds this treasure is under renovations! Could you not move the statue to another part of the church so that it can be viewed?...More
We enjoyed our visit here for the most part. Beautiful artwork, including the MichaelAngelo statue. Our favorite part of the church were the newly discovered frescoes and painted crypts. They were beautiful. We were a bit put off by the staff member who followed us...More

This is the only Michelangelo outside of Italy! The church is easy to find and on most walking tours. Yet I have met folks that have visited Bruges and never realized it was here. Do not make that mistake! Its history of removal to a...More

The Church of Our Lady is currently undergoing major restoration. During this period, the church is only partially accessible, and many artworks are not visible. From the beginning of 2014, for a period of almost two years, the chancel and the tombs will be closed to the public. During the restoration, the ticket price will be reduced from € 6 to € 3.
