There are visual similarities between Notre Dame de Paris and Cathedral of St.Michael and St.Gudul, but also some very special things: very rich vitrages and, very unusual, the place of organ. It's a special experience if you have enough time to visit it.

There are are lots of churches to visit and much depends on your level of interest and religious belief. I thought this was one of the best we saw in Brussels. Sunday mass had some Gregorian chant and fine organ playing..

A very beautiful and large cathedral, definitely the best place to visit in the city! Free to enter, warm out of the cold and amazing stained-glass windows. There was a couple playing on the organ and a violin which really set a lovely tone.

A great church indeed but not much to see. If you'd like some astonishing experience, the Sacred Heart is a better place.

We shared Christmas Midnight Mass here - just a few steps from our hotel, and it was glorious. There are Christmas displays donated by various language groups in Belgium. Fascinating takes on the nativity scene.

Sunday 1000 Mass is in English. 1130 and 1230 are in French. Daily Masses @ 0745 are in Dutch and French, depending on the day. Best source to confirm is a free app called Mass Times.
