  • The oldest church of the Netherlands. With a stunning treasure trove. Combine several styles: Baroque, Gothic. Many of the tombs. Particularly interesting relics of saints are represented. In fairly large sizes are preserved the remains. The main attraction of Maastricht

  • Basilic st Servais is into a great place in Maastricht where each year Andre Rieu and his team make beautiful show
  • The tower is accessible, providing you with a magnificent view over Maastricht
  • Beautiful place in the center of the city !
  • 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?
  • It is a Catholic church with profound feelings for those who are in deep religious spiritual concentration.
