Cathedral of Our Lady, Antwerp
(4.4/5 based on 1,900+ 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 really pays to visit the polished Cathedral. Unlike many other churches and places of worship is in very light because of the abundant natural light, what its art treasures to fully arrive late

  • 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
