“A place for reflection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

Although not as grand as some cathedrals, it is a lovely space and the request for quietness was well obeyed.
As well as ecclesiastical interest, there are a number of artworks displayed which seem to fit the space very well.
The organ is also beautiful & unusual having some horizontal pipes.
Well worth a visit.

“Worth seeing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2013

Beautiful cathedral in Brussels with statues and stained glass windows. It was not crowded and it is not far from city centre.
I would say it is average compared to other European cathedrals.

“A reflective moment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

We visited whilst a service was on and sat and listened especially to a lady violinist as the acustics were amazing. We walked around and read with interest the parables on the sculptures and really made us think - especially the widow who gave so much more although giving little in value compared to a rich man - makes you think. We must have spent a good hour taking in the splendour of this Cathedral. Also youngsters were practising for a forthcoming concert and once again we listened to them and they sounded wonderful

“Magnificent cathedral!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

A stunning Gothic cathedral inside and out! Midway between the Grand Place and the Royal Palace. I did not like the surroundings that much, though: newer, uglier buildings that take away a bit of the cathedral's charm. But a must see, nonetheless.

“Love It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

My husband and I love sightseeing the various churches and cathedrals when we are in Europe - this one did not disappoint. Some of the most vivid and spectacular stained glass I've ever seen coupled with truly majestic architecture. Love, love, love. I would say it is a must see when visiting Brussels.
