We have visited the St. Willebrord Basilica and its crypt in Echternach. The Merovingian crypt contains a white marble sarcophagus in which are the remains of the founder of the Abbey of Echternach. 11th century frescoes.

Please check opening hours before going there. When closed, we were disappointed as there is nothing really to see. Plaques said it us open, but wasn't.

Nice and quiet. Beautiful architecture. Just in the centre of this small and pretty city. Very close to it are a lot of small and friendly restaurants. The city hall is ancient. Also you can get to the river threw the park.

The abbey in the center of Echternach is a must-see during a visit of this Email city. Its an old catholic church with an impressiv ceiling and lange colourful windows.

Beautiful church with a very interesting history, from Willibrord to the second world war. A place to pray, be silent and meet God.

The towers of the basilique in Roman style dominate the city. The church built by St. Willibrord in about 800, burnt down in 1016. The reconstruction was finished in 1031. After the French Revolution it became a factory of ceramic pottery. Restauration started in 1861,...More

The basilika is normally open to public but during funerals, weddings it is recommended not to enter in order not to disturb the ceremony. It's worth going for a visit and have a look at the Crypta where the coffin of Willibrordus is standing.
