  • Should have more information in English and other languages. There is a room that screens the overview/ summary of the historical aspect of the Basillica .... but it's in Dutch. There is no thing in E...  more »
  • I'm not such a Church visitor, but this is a must, middle ages, here i am. To be fair, I have 100 words to use to say that the Cathedral on van in Prague is something more impressive, but that also come through the construction period and the absence of the iconoclastic.

  • 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.
