Holidays in St. Servaas Church

Holiday Travel Guide
St. Servaas Church which includes a church or cathedral, religious elements and a statue or sculpture

Visit the crypt where the fourth-century remains of St. Servaas are buried and see the treasures that lie within this fine Romanesque church.

St. Servaas Church is an ornate building that stands by the café-populated Vrijthof Square. Descend into the sacred crypt of St. Servaas to walk a path that pilgrims have followed since the fourth century. As you pass, admire the church’s Romanesque and Gothic architecture, which is decorated with murals and reliefs.

St. Servaas died in 384 and was buried in this location. Since then, a church has existed above his crypt, though early versions were rebuilt and enlarged to cope with the flocks of visiting pilgrims. The modern church dates back to 11th century, though many sections were reconstructed with Romanesque and Gothic elements.

Through the entrance in the north gate, walk into a stunning 15th-century cloister. Pass through to one of the church’s primary attractions, the Treasury. Here, browse a collection of silver goblets, religious artefacts and a bust of St. Servaas. The room is decorated with reliefs that depict scenes from his life. During Easter, the bust is carried through the city streets in a celebratory parade.

Walk down to the crypt and experience the solemn space where St. Servaas has laid for 16 centuries. Its raised, white ceiling and stained glass windows create an airy ambiance. Inside the church, look out for pieces of Romanesque sculpture.

Notice the shift to Gothic styles as you walk to the southern areas of the church. Here, a spectacular gold, blue and red arch with carved figures brings decorative flair to the space.

After exploring, find a café in around Vrijthof and enjoy a coffee complimented by Dutch apple pie. Alternatively, savour a locally brewed beer with bitterballen (round, deep-fried croquettes).

Find St. Servaas Church in the Vrijthof, near the historic centre of Maastricht. The crypt is open daily and charges no admission.
