We attended a wedding there a couple of years ago and the bride and groom and their entourage went up the steps for the ceremony ensuring... More

This beautiful Basilica in the middle of Maastricht is a jewel not to be missed. The sun was streaming into the church when I visited and the interior is filled with breathtaking views in every direction.

Located in the centre of the town, this little cathedral adds beauty to the city of Maastricht. Strolling around the city and you will find this cathedral. Have a break and enjoy drink or food around it. You can also enjoy nice performance like choir practicing around it on weekend. very nice

In the center of town, on the Onze lieve vrouwe plein. Go inside to have a look and then have a coffee or beer with some food on the most charming terraces of Maastricht. Worth the visit

This is an old and beautiful cathedral. On one side of the cathedral is a beautiful statue of our lady and many worshipers come here to light candles and pray. We also witnessed a wedding on the day of our visit. The bride and groom and their little daughter had come to the cathedral in a small Fiat decorated for... More

The first time I walked into this Cathedral, I had to take some minutes for my eyes to adjust to the darkness. It's a very impressive temple, and for free.

The miraculous wooden statue of Virgin Mary is placed in a way that can be admired and worshipped both from the inside and outside of the church. Unfortunately,... More

Appearantly it is not the largest, but it is the most important church in Maastricht and it is fantastic. Full of beautiful led-windows and many wonderful treasures. A must to visit even if you are not religious !

We visited the day after Easter (Easter Monday) and the strong scent of frankincense hung in the dim but expansive sanctuary. The gotto of Our Lady of the Star was ablaze--every spot that could hold a lit candle was burning that day. Overall, the architechtural style is simple but beautiful and a pleasant stop alon the way.
