I was taking a stroll in search of the tourist centre and found this charm. The reverence of God is found in the beautiful colours and Stain glass windows. The church is under renovation and every little contribution counts so it's a place to visit...More

The decline of the mediëval Roman Catholic clergy's power started early 16th century. It is the main reason the construction of the cathedral in Utrecht was never completed. A natural disaster in 1674 dealt the final blow and for ages the area which is now...More

The main nave of this church was wrecked in a terrible storm in 1674. It is now much shorter than when designed and stands apart from its tower. Originally the design of this church had been inspired by the cathedral in Tournai. It has a...More

It is free (or almost, they kindly ask for 2.50 euro donation) and it makes for a nice short stop. They give you a brochure but it is not very informative. The story of the church is very interesting though as half of it was...More

It's free and it's polite to visit the cathedral of any major city. The architecture is typically French Gothic and beautiful from any angle. Part of the church collapsed in the 17th century and was never re-built (that is why the church tower is 50...More

It is a lovely church, very well kept and definitely worth a visit. The stained glass and paintings are marvellous.

Large central pre reformation Gothic cathedral with long history. Guides available but volunteers useful interpretation and speak good English. Voluntary donation rather then entrance fee. Nice stained glass much of which had to be repaired after bombing. Known for its music concerts.
