Die Kathedrale St. Michael und St. Gudula (frz. Cathédrale St. Michel et Gudule; ndl. Sint-Michiels en Sint-Goedelekathedraal), häufig verkürzt zu St. Gudule, ist die Hauptkirche der Stadt Brüssel und Sitz des Erzbischofs von Mecheln-Brüssel.
An der Stelle der heutigen Kathedrale auf dem Treurenberg befand sich bereits in karolingischer Zeit (8. Jahrhundert) eine dem Erzengel Michael geweihte Taufkirche. Mit Überführung der Gebeine der Heiligen Gudula hierher im Jahre 1047 wurde das Patrozinium entsprechend erweitert. Der heutige Bau wurde 1226 begonnen und Ende des 15. Jahrhunderts mit Fertigstellung der 69 Meter hohen Türme vollendet.

A must see in Brussels. Just from the outside this church is spectacular. The design of the building is really cool and the little tree/ grassy area is nice to sit and take in all the beauty. Then inside it’s beautiful. You can see the history of it all. I would come back here again that’s how nice it is.

Stunning. That is the proper word. Too bad tourists can't follow the "silence" rule and let their kids climb all over the chairs. Other then that this is a beautiful place with tons of history!

I am not an expert on Churches and this church should definitely have some special properties but looked pretty similar to many other churches I have seen. I think the painted glasses have a special beauty to them and they look more like 3D with nice shades and depth. Furthermore, this church has an underground section that you can visit for about 2 euros which we didn't have the opportunity.

Cathedral is very beautiful, huge it is also an event venue. However, around cathedral I miss the green part. It seems like out of the context, in the middle of the streets and other buildings.

Those, interested in St. James pilgrimage experience- Camino de Santiago- can visit the beautiful exposition of shells (not to talk that the Cathedral is a wonderful place for silent escape and from the crowds of Brussels for pray and meditation!)

I love going to churches and this was one of my favorites! They had amazing sculptures and what looked like great church organs. The entire back half of the church was sectioned off and there was a silent area of prayer which we couldn’t take photos. I appreciated the stone in the church and seeing one of the priests. Amazing.

Nice place to visit, the great architecture and the history. It is a free entrance but you get the chance to go see the catacombs for 1 euro also. Looks like the Notre dame in Paris and it is worth visiting.

Gothic medieval cathedral and a very impressive one at that. Free to go in. It's similar to somewhere like Westminster or Notre Dame, and just as impressive. Worth spending 2 Euros to go into the treasure room where they have a lot of ancient relics and old golden artifacts.

All in all a great place; don't forget to visit the treasury - it hosts some very beautiful pieces, all for mere 2€/pp and very friendly church staff! Side alleys are quite picturesque, too, so make sure to enjoy the entirety of it :)

Very nice cathedral that takes your breath away. It looks magnificent from the outside the inside is so beautiful with its stained glass and its architectures. It is right next to a museum which sadly we did not explore. Take a few minutes and go in and enjoy!

Very nice gothic church near central station. You can visit it everyday for free. There are a few benches at the front so it makes it a nice place to sit and read a book or just to take a quick break while looking at a great view.

Enjoyed our visit to the cathedral. It is one of if not the most beautiful cathedral in Belgium. Make sure to be respectful and quiet especially if service is going on. Everything is clean and maintained nicely compared to some other cathedrals in Europe. Highly recommended. Always remember to remove your hat!!

Absolutely beautiful Cathedral. Not religious but an amazing place to visit. A very peaceful place and Increadibly ornate. Take time to walk around it
