Basilica of St. Servatius Reviews
Hubby and I both enjoyed taking lots of photos of the lovely stained glass windows and the simple yet beautiful ceiling. Considered the 3 Euros each worth it as a donation for the upkeep. more »
Ik heb al veel kerken bezocht maar deze behoort zeker tot mijn favorieten! Uitgebreide schatkamer met interessante objecten.

Extensive treasure room with interesting objects. The church itself is painted to what it used to be like, which gives a very different picture compared to the bare churches we usually see.
Simply beautiful. I've heard there was an entrance fee, but to visit the common area of the church it was free of charge, and the paid visit to the extra areas was already closed at 4:30pm, but it was worth the visit anyways. Although there is not much rooms to visit you can spend some time if you like to pay attention to architecture details. Although there are many tourists it is still a really good place to pray and think.
Very beautiful church! I have not seen any other church like this. This was just speechless! I have more than 10 pictures from this church only. Recommended!
