This is a church that is still in use, so respect is required when visiting (no photos?). Otherwise, it is gorgeous architecture with its own square. If you want a place for peaceful reflection in Maastricht, then this is it.

well worth the money to enter and the relics was so very interesting and the Cathedral is very breathtaking and there is a lot to see and take in the past history. Go and see for yourself, you will not be disappointed.

We visited this lovely church in the centre of Maastricht on the day of the André Reiu concert and it was very atmospheric and spiritual. I loved the candles in the porch entrance with the statue of Our Lady Star of The Sea ablaze with candles lit by the faithful or the hopeful. I'm a bit of an à la... More

What a beautiful place of worship. Its quite dark inside on first entering until you get accustomed to the light but very beautiful. I particuarily like the wonderful steps leading to the main alter. 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
