St. Nicholas Church - Review

This church practically hits you with its domineering presence. It’s bold, big, solemn and impossible to miss. It was built over an earlier Romanesque church that stood in the same spot. Until the belfry of Gent was built, the church tower, unusual for having been built over the nave rather than the front, used the be the city’s watchtower. Together with the belfry and St. Bavo’s Cathedral, the tower was one of the reasons that Gent’s medieval skyline was famous. Light shines from outside the tower straight into the transept. The church has been built in Tournai bluestone in Scheldt Gothic Style.

St. Nicholas Church, Ghent Reviews

  • It’s such a beautiful church! I love old buildings and it’s amazing to take photos of it from every angle. I never went inside but rather appreciated it’s beauty from the outside.

  • The church from the early 12th century. Its mission - to protect merchants and sailors (their patron site). Merchants and sailors raised the money to build this imoressive example of the Scheldt Gothic style. The central tower is unique. It acts as a natural lantern, as the light shines directly into the transept.

  • This is a very beautiful church right in the center of the city. It is really nice to see from the outside. We did not have time to go inside but maybe next time we will try to. If you are near that area of town I would walk over to it just to take in the architecture of the church. It’s really nice to see it.

  • This church is one of the oldest and most prominent landmarks in Ghent which is located at the Korenmarkt (wheat market).Very nice church. My favorite in whole town. It has very impressive exterior. Made in gothic style with very nice cupola.During weekends especially on saturday it will be crowded with tourists.If you want to reach this church from Central station Gent sint pieters then take Tram 1 just opposite to Sint pieters station and get down at korenmarkt stop,it may take 15-20mins approx to reach korenmarkt

  • Munument of medieval culture and architecture. Admission is free but any donation is welcomed and highly appreciated. Visitors are allowed to take non commercial photo without flash light. Highly recommend for your visit.
