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.

  • I've been several times in the Cathedral and every time I find it beautiful. The last time was with a guide who gave us a very expert explanation about building and Interior. We are in places where one would not normally. In the tower one could take a look at the ceiling vaults ... spectacular!

  • Beautiful Cathedral with beautiful temporary paintings of Rubens. Definitely worth a visit, because this Cathedral can rival many in European countries.

  • Beautiful from the outside, visible from almost the entire city. . disappointing the management! You come in and you can only buy items and souvenirs in the "shop" ... If you want to visit the real you have to pay. Disappointing

  • 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
