  • Nice cathedral that is included with price of the Gruuthuse next door. Imagine it is crowded most times of the day.

  • This is a beautiful church situated in the south side of the city right next to the museum. The entry to the general area of worship is free but to see the Michelangelo's statue of Madonna and the child you have to buy a ticket for €7 which allows you to go inside into the back of the church and see all the artifacts and the statue up close It is a beautiful and grand piece of Art and definitely recommend to see it once on your life
  • Must visit when in Belgium... place where Indian movie ok was skot
  • The church opens at 12pm on Sundays i guess that's why we couldn't cost inside but the exterior is just marvelous. The best and grandeur can only be experienced live. Must must visit
  • The most amazing place I have ever had the privilege to experience! Totally breathtaking! Surreal! It touches your soul.
  • An architectural masterpiece. Both inside and out. You can pop in the side door for free and take advantage of the gardens outside as well. If you crave more, then you can purchase a ticket to explore more inside as well. It’s a very popular tourist spot so prepare for crowds during the day.
