  • Very interesting and beautiful place
  • Basilic st Servais is into a great place in Maastricht where each year Andre Rieu and his team make beautiful show
  • Beautiful basilica
  • The tower is accessible, providing you with a magnificent view over Maastricht
  • It's just another church with modern design inside and 4 euro for entrance. I'm a bit disappointed. They made a modern church in ancient walls. Ok, but what are 4 euro for?
