After 169 years of construction the cathedral of Antwerp finally dominated Antwerp's skyline in 1521 with a height of 123 metres. It's the highest Gothic building in the Low Countries.
It took 169 years (1352-1521) of labour to raise the 123m heavenward-reaching steeple of the Cathedral, the highest Gothic building in the Low Countries.
The Cathedral is an iconic treasury, with an impressive collection of major art works, including a series of paintings by Rubens. Now, after twenty years, the seven-naved church has been restored to its former architectural glory. Fascinating features include Rubens’ ‘Elevation of the Cross’ and his ‘Descent from the Cross’.
Any visit to Antwerp starts with a visit of the Cathedral of Our Lady.
After visiting the cathedral, make sure to stop by at the bistro De Plek, which recently won an interior design award. In front of De Plek, the former St. John's Chapel behind the sacristy has been converted into a cosy meeting place for residents, tourists and churchgoers. You can go there for a drink and a bite to eat. Beer aficionado? Then don't forget to try the cathedral beer, available in blond and dark.
