We enjoyed mass here on Sunday morning despite the fact we do not speak Flemish. It was a spiritual and pleasant experience. Sad that attendance is so poor. My 9 year old was delighted, upon shaking the priest's hand after mass, with the blessing he received. A visiting priest from India greeted us in English--very thoughtful. Strongly urge others to visit.

A beautiful old church that is impressive for its sheer size alone, especially when viewed from within. Be sure to pay the one or two Euros to go into the museum part and do the self guided audio tour. They actually have a pretty impressive collection of art and artifacts!

The interior is being restored so it cannot be fully appreciated. We went to Sunday mass and the organ playing filled the huge interior with music to make it a most memorable occasion.

It was lovely but they were doing a lot of restoration work within the church at the time of our visit

As others have said, this is a beautiful light and airy church. Currently, there is some construction. Do not miss the pulpit which is beautifully carved. I didn't find a description of the carving (in English or Flemish) which I would have found helpful and interesting.
