Should have more information in English and other languages. There is a room that screens the overview/ summary of the historical aspect of the Basillica .... but it's in Dutch. There is no thing in English except a piece of paper .... A good showcase of Relics but overall nothing extraordinary .... Tips: visit when you find you have free... More

I think i know Maastricht well. But somehow i have never visited this basilica. And that is quite a shame. For a small entrance fee you get access to the museum vault, the courtyard and the basilica itself. Take your time, there is more than enough to see. Be sure to visit the grave of St. Servatius. And don't forget... More

I thought it was just an old church. But that was not just that. The only church in Netherland which has tomb and tunnels underneath. Eventhough on mondays every place is closed, they were opened. I did not expect to buy a ticket but it turned out to be a treasury. I found it very interesting. Moreover, there was a... More

This church is supposed to be the oldest still existing church in the Netherlands. Well preserved and breathing the religious atmosphere with silence and yes.... still teal candles burning. Well worth a visit.

Whilst on our weekend trip to Maastricht we took the opportunity to visit St Servatius. An imposing building obviously steeped in history. You can walk around a small part of the building free of charge, but to get into the inner sanctums, there is a fee, albeit very small(3 Euros per person). Having paid our entrance fee, we were then... More
