- Opposite the cathedral, you will see the Gothic Belfry, dating back to 1338 and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
- The Fine Arts Museum (Museum voor Schone Kunsten) would be your next stop, housed in a neoclassical building built in 1903. Collections include masterpieces by Rubens, van Dyck, Hieronymus Bosch and other top Belgian artists from the 14th to the early 20th century.
