This place is truely beautiful and the town is quaint. But if you cant read German then read up on the history beforehand. The english notes provided are minimal and do not give much detail. The museum looks good too but again nothing in english. Dissapointed. Other reviewers have noted the same problem. But the town is really worth spending... More

For those used to northern European gothic or Italian baroque this place is amazing. We're just not used to the byzantine influences in what is really quite an austere building. The choir is super-elevated over the crypt because that's where the patrician nuns held their services. Particularly of interest is the treasury. Like that of Halberstadt it contains items of...

This is the most beautiful place in this entire castle. It’s a jewel to admire! It is mainly built in Romanesque style, even though we can see some other styles as well. This is the 4th church built on the tomb of St. Servatius. When I entered the church, I had to stand still and admire every section of the... More

This Romanesque church building has many unique architectural features worth noting. The elaborate carvings, the arrangement of the piers and columns in the nave, the elevated sanctuary, and the Domschatz. The entry fee is a bit much, but considering what one pays to get here and stay, it's not much, and the cost of maintaining a 1000 yo structure is... More

St Servatius is where the first German King, Henry, was crowned a thousand years ago. The church houses a breathtaking display of the Royal Crown Jewels which survived all the European Wars but was looted by an American Officer, Lieutenant Joe Mead, in May 1945. The Government had to buy back the artefacts from the Mead family after 1991.

Well worth the walk to the top of the hill. Beautiful setting and views. information available in English. Informative but full of dates and sometimes a bit lengthy . Put this on your places to visit.

When buy your ticket buy for all three parts. The castle, the church and the crypt. This church has an interesting history reaching as far as Texas, U.S.A..

The church itself is very old, parts from the 11-12th centuries. It was used by the nazis during the war. Please have a look, and then turn to the "Schatzkammer". There are 3, all astoundingly interesting, From a pot from the 1st century, through gospel coffins (Evangeliars) to tapestries from the 12-13th centuries

A bit disappointed with the church, outside is old world structure, but inside appears to be modern. Some area's closed off - staff seemed more concerned about having correct ticket to enter naïve ( which we had ) All in all not that impressed
