If you are into religious art it certainly is worth a visit the treasure room. If you are not into religious art it is still worth visiting because of the history and the building itself. The stained glass windows are beautifull when lit by sunlight. Do not forget to visit the grave of St. Servaas.

Basilica of St. Servatious is one of the most significant monuments in Netherlands covering almost 2000 years of history. Amazing monument with incredible treasury collection that will transport you to the earliest centuries AD when Christianity was being established in Europe amidst fluid borders and local powers.

We have visited old churches all over Europe. This has to be the best kept one we have seen. The visit includes a musuum area with plently of artifact. I would have appreciated more explaination in other language than dutch. It just makes harder

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 will find the entrance.

Go there, but no need to enter unless you're interested in churches. The outside (backside) is the best part.

It is not only a big church but it is also a beautiful one. We didn't go inside this time as no much time left.

Visiting the Basilica of St Servatius, one of the oldest sites in The Netherlands, I was surprised by priest coming down the altar and joining a guitar player for a long hour of music, while candles were distributed to visitors. Inside the Basilica there is also a Museum, where one can learn a bit of history of Saint Servatius and... More

The huge church we see today began around 950AD and it houses the tomb of St Servatius. He was the first Bishop of Maastricht and the patron saint of the city - he died in 384AD. The Basilica is breath-taking. So many sites within including the Sacristry, Cloister Garden and 6,650kg bell, Treasury (as well as gold and silver includes... More

Beautiful Basilica with history that dates back to late 300 A.D. It is beautiful and the treasury is fantastic. Give yourself enough time to examine each piece. The artisanship is fabulous.

Worth a visit to see a Catholic basilica in the Netherlands. Unlike the Basilica of Our Lady, this is a much lighter church with beautiful cloisters and a very interesting crypt where the alleged grave of St Servatius is to be found. A small information leaflet explains its varied history. Be sure to check out the very early grave remains... More
