It costs 2.50€ (student tarif, be sure to bring your card along!) to get into the Basilica, and I thought it was well worth the money. The basilica has a gorgeous inner courtyard with a small courtyard and has an interesting collection (in the treasure room) of reliques and similar memorabilia. Unfortunately, a lot of the inscriptions are only in... More

Very impressive building from the outside. We did not go in though, maybe for our next visit! You will find it on the Vrijthof, the centre square of Maastricht.

Isn't this the church of God? The house of God? I went to the admissions desk, he told me to go elsewhere to pray!!!! I've been to many churches in Italy and throughout Europe without paying! The same occurrence happened in Thorn, NL!

The local people have a lot of devotion to this saint and the Basilica is well looked after and has a special atmosphere. There are many interesting features to see - but the English explanatory leaflet needs a lot of work to make it more readable.

It was definitely worth going too and takes about an hour to get through. Don't miss out on the artefacts.

We were at the Christmas Market and decided to go inside St. Servatius. We were very surprised and happy. The art and artifacts were amazing.

Just beautiful. We were able to attend Mass and listen to choir which harmony sounded so perfect in the Basilica. I loved the Crucifix which was suspended in the air. I would recommend attending the Mass even if you cannot understand the words. You will experience the atmosphere of the old ages there.

Anyone visiting Maastricht should visit. It is good to know interesting history of this town. It is amazing how important this place is by the Vatican.
