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.

Great monument, full of history ! The church is located near the central station so it is really easy to visit it ! If you spend a few days in brussels you must go there

There’s not much to see here. The main see of Belgium is in Mechelen and there are many other better things to do in Brussels. The church of Notre Dame au Sablon is much more interesting.

Stunning architecture. Also worth it to pay €2 to see the treasury, has some amazing artefacts. Has a little underground bit additionally, but I wouldn’t say it’s essential to any visit.

This is the absolute church for the city of Brussels. It's like Notre Dame des Paris for Paris. It's vast and wonderful and the interior is spectacular. An absolute must-see.

Haunting and stunning is how I would describe St.Michael and St.Gudula Cathedral. It’s massive and has such beautiful architecture which you can really make out during the day. At night, it transforms with lights accentuating the drama and adding mystique. Definitely work walking by and/or...More

This is a lovely structure. A beautiful cathedral. It looks rather majestic and it is quite beautiful on the inside as well. We walked by this cathedral a number of times during our week long stay in Brussels, as our hotel happened to be nearby.
