An impressive cathedral ! The renovations are done on the outside, but now everything behind the choir is blocked. But still a very impressive cathedral to visit. No fee to enter, neither for the treasury. If you like Flemish Primitives and other artefacts from the middle ages really worth a visit. You should be able to walk around the choir... More

A great example of Flemish architecture, art and magnificent tapestries. Take time to visit the tombs.

A very interesting and atmospheric place- what can be seen- the church is undergoing a massive refurb inside so a lot is not accessible- DO go though and support the efforts to restore the place and also experience the quiet and peace here after the bustle of Brugge.

Only a small part of the cathedral was open to view as there are extensive renovations going on. You could see a small amount of the stained glass but the majority was behind scaffolding. The outside of the cathedral is very photographic, the masonry seems to change colour depending on the weather and of course when it is lit up... More

Unfortunately my review is some months old, so hopefully the things that I found awe inspiring are still there. I really enjoyed The Welcome Church of Our lady but I just loved this cathedral!!! It’s grand, it’s imposing, and it’s filled with all sorts of special things. The serenity, but at the same time vibrancy, I felt when I entered... More

This cathedral really is beautiful, from the outside and inside. It also features medieval coffin with original murals inside, the artwork/relics museum is particularly impressive. Unfortunately, some of the cathedral was blocked off for renovation work but the remainder that was on show was still awe inspiring.

Unfortunately, half of the building inside was blocked off due to a huge amount of scaffolding but what we saw was beautiful. Hard to believe that the building is a stone's throw away from back street shops but a huge building inside. Architecture, sculptures and ornaments are stunning. Well worth a visit!
