Tour of the Basilica of St. Servatius and treasure room
Visit one of Maastricht's main attractions and discover a treasure room overflowing with tradition, history, religious culture, and architectural gems.
On Maastricht's grandest square you'll find the impressive and monumental Basilica of St. Servatius. This basilica, which is the oldest in the Netherlands, has one of the most magnificent treasure rooms of Europe. It's not for nothing that it figures on the UNESCO list of world heritage sites. It is one of the highlights of Maastricht that you mustn't miss!
Accompanied by a guide, you will discover the basilica and its extensive treasure room. This is where Maastricht keeps her greatest treasures. The most valuable of these is the shrine of St. Servatius (also called the Noodkist), containing the relics of the Netherlands' first bishop. This example of 'Maaslands' goldsmith craftsmanship is one of the most valuable in the Netherlands. You can also admire the pilgrim's staff, the bust of St. Servatius, the pectoral cross, the chalice with portable altar, the many relics and reliquaries, liturgical objects, and textiles. You won't believe your eyes!
