  St-Gummaruskerk
by Maeve_81
 
 

This is one of the most beautiful Brabant gothic-style churches of the world!
Locals call the tower 'Peperbus' (i.e. pepper mill) because of its shape. The lower part is gothic, the middle baroque and the upper part is roccoco.
Inside the church you'll find a beautiful baroque pulpit, stained glasses, a decorated chorus, a copy of the Turin shroud and the relic shrine of St-Gummarus.

You can visit the church for 1,25 euro :
- Easter - october : 10-12 am + 2-5 pm
