The cathedral's two terraced spires reach 64 m (210 ft) tall and were designed by Jan van Ruysbroeck, the same architect responsible for the tower of the city's town hall. Inside, visit the mausoleums of the dukes of Brabant and Archduke Ernest of Austria. Admire the way the sunlight hits the cathedral's stained-glass windows. The cathedral contains a massive organ with 4,300 pipes.

St. Michael and St. Gudula Cathedral (Cathedrale St-Michel et Ste-Gudule) reviews
Beautiful cathedral in the center. I was intrigued by the figures with golden objects like swords. Great for pictures both indoors and outside as well more »
The Castle sits on a small hill not far from the railway station and city centre - I walked past it almost every day yet did not go inside until almost my last day. The outside is if anything more..... more »
Such a gorgeous cathedral! Very well preserved, and kept squeaky clean as well. The facade especially captures my gaze every time I walk past this building.
We visited during an exhibition of Nativity scenes from different cultural origins last December. Quite interesting. Very nice church, impressive building, lots of artwork to behold. Good visit.
