Cathedral of Our Lady, Antwerp
(4.4/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Stand in wonder at the delicately carved reliefs and statuary of the iconic, yet incomplete, Cathedral of Our Lady. The cathedral's single Gothic spire pierces the sky at 123 m (404 ft); plans to build a matching partner were never realized. The cathedral played an important role in the development of choral music, with some of the 15th-century masters making their home here as vicars. Consider attending a concert in the chapel to experience the sounds that inspired an entire generation of musicians. Be sure to check out the Rubens painting housed inside; it was returned to its place after World War II.

  • It is huge and its Tower can be seen from almost half the city. It has lots of detail in its architecture which makes him quite attractive. At night they light it, and it looks even more.

  • There has been a chapel on this spot since 1124 and you can feel the depth of history when you enter the doors. In addition to the 4 Rubens altar paintings, many of the other 16th and 17th century Fle...  more »
  • The Antwerp Cathedral is a building ' young ', dating from the later Middle Ages. The first Gothic cathedrals dating already from the 12th century. Her youth makes it a slim building, with one high slender Tower and one amputee Tower (unfinished because of lack of money). In the airy space and the light on. Obviously, the two organs a ' must see ' for those interested. Paintings of Rubens are well known. Annex a curiosities shop like that nowadays is common. The front entrance is free (ability to burn a candle), the Cathedral is paying.

  • An incredible cathedral. Must see.
  • Unfortunately I couldn't go inside, but it was still completely worth taking a look from outside.
  • Beautiful gothic style cathedral with magnificent spires. Still in great shape.
  • One of the main sights in the city. Worth the price of admission just for the beautiful painting by Rubens which is hanging at the back alone.
  • Great from out side. Love this building. In my opinion one of the best in Europe. Have not seen antwerp if u don't see this. Best view is from the pier by the river. Enjoy
