organ recital at the Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek (Basilica of Our Lady)
Listening to a recital played on Limburg's oldest organ in the oldest church of Maastricht is a truly 'heavenly' experience!
Learn about the beautiful Séverin organ dating back to 1652 that takes pride of place in the Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek. Under the guidance of resident organist Hans Leenders, you'll learn all there is to know about this impressive instrument and have the chance to listen to a private performance. Hans will first tell you all about the organ and the beautiful panels with which it is adorned. This will be followed by a special recital lasting around 20 to 25 minutes. Depending on the group size, you may be able to watch the recital from higher up in the church, close to the organ. The Onze Lieve Vrouwebasiliek (also known as Sterre-der-Zee (Star of the Sea) or Slevrouwe) is a remarkable Romanesque church in Maastricht's city centre, situated on the Onze Lieve Vrouweplein square. The church is one of the Netherlands' Top 100 UNESCO monuments. The chapel of the Sterre-der-Zee, where hundreds of candles are lit each day, is especially popular with visitors from all over the world.
This package can also be booked with additional options, such as a drink and snack, or an extra tour of the church or city centre.
