Create an itinerary including Cathedral of Our Lady
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.

  • Overlooking the current restoration work, the Cathedral is pretty amazing. On the outside, the spire towers over old town and the black cupola is unique and intriguing. Once inside, you are presented....  more

  • This is not just another church to visit--the artwork is incredible. It's worth visiting and taking time to sit and admire the architecture and artwork.

  • Beautiful Church. Entry is not free. Art historians can also see some fantastic paintings as well as the amazing architecture. There are also plenty of places to pray and worship for those who are religious. I'm always moved by the amazing creations in this world
  • Sort of expensive to get in but I thought it was worth it. The scale of the inside is very impressive, and the art on display is truly beautiful. There's plenty of explanations written in many languages too so it's very easy to learn about the art etc. I could have spent ages in there just soaking it in.
  • This’s a real gem of a cathedral. It’s spectacular. It will makes your heart sing. It’s dazzling white. With many impressive carvings and objects of art that have religious significance. Remember it’s a functional cathedral. We happen to visit during the ceremony and were asked to watch from the hallway.
  • A fairly steep entry price, but don't be put off by that. This is one of Europe's great cathedrals . Great wood carving, stain glass windows, history and a fair few paintings by rubens. Def worth a visit
  • An amazing church where you can see the olden architecture, paintings, and spirituality. Will get and old feel in each and every thing over here. Entry made with fee and should be vaccinated against covid.
