  • The structure out beautiful, very good archaeological designs and their maintenance has been good. But when we arrived there was no Guidebook, so inside we have gone rather lost. Inside there are golden Catholic exhibition.

  • Should not be missed if you visit Maastricht. Both the outside and the inside are wonderful. Also visit the ' treasure trove ' is very worth it. In the Basilica is also a very interesting slide show about the history of the Basilica.

  • 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
  • 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.
  • it's like going back in time when you enter the building
