  • Interesting museum and church but you get see it all in 15 minutes. It's not expensive though so well worth a visit. Don't be fooled into thinking it is closed. Keep walking around the outside and you...  more »
  • Go there, but no need to enter unless you're interested in churches. The outside (backside) is the best part. 
  • A great beautiful Basilica with impressive treasure room. Is the low entrance fee. Also note the carvings of the Confessionals and the beautiful stained-glass Windows. At the box office is a handy booklet. For the photographers do not use the Flash.

  • 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.
